      Hi Folks,   As you may have noticed if you're a regular visitor to our forums, things look a little different as our forums have just undergone a significant upgrade and now have a fresh new look!  We're aware that there are one or two little "niggles" with the upgrade that still need ironing out, but we're on the case, and normal service will be resumed shortly!   In the meantime, if you've got a problem with a BitTorrent product, but are unable to post about it in the forums, you can also find support via the following links: BitTorrent Client Help Center BitTorrent Sync Help Center BitTorrent Bundle Help Center BitTorrent Bleep Help Center   Thank you for your patience as we work to improve your forum experience! UPDATE: 1st Feb - We're currently investigating issues with notifications - earlier issues that may have been preventing some users from logging in have now been resolved. UPDATE: 2nd Feb - Looking for the BitTorrent Sync forums? They've moved to http://forum.getsync.com (you can use your existing BitTorrent forum credentials to login)

Seeding new torrents

2 posts in this topic

So, I've been using BT for awhile now but until recently I was downloading and seeding only. I finally decided to create and upload my own torrents. I did not seed them initially and now there are issues with downloading. (I hate to admit that I had no idea what seeding really was until I read through these forums.) Is there any way to add the torrents back to BT without having to create new ones?

amadRigal, I actually can't help you but have a related issue and I thought I would post here? If you wish me to delete it let me know, and I will.

You may be able answer this for me, it is pretty basic, and I am frustrated that I have not been able to work it out.

I have the uploading and downloading (seeding and leeching) thing down pat, and make sure I seed at a good ratio, usually at least 2 to 1 (that seems to be a consensus "good ratio" from what I've read).

Here is my issue: I have used Bittorent Plus to create torrent files to upload, and assumed I could just dump them into the seed box and they would work.

They don't, or: After two days I don't have a single "call" on stuff which probably should.

So, most basically: If I have a file, for example, a music file, an album that is a collection of MP3's in a folder, can someone describe what I hope are simple steps that will let me upload to the net?

I don't want to just be a load, I want to share what I can bring to the party, but this seems like it should be simple and I am not getting it.

Thanks, and thank you amadRigsl. I am hoping one response would cover both.
