      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)

Torrent not connecting to seeds

5 posts in this topic

I just downloaded and installed bittorrent, and this is the first torrent I've done. This torrent has been downloading for a few days (it's really big), at a slowish but kind of acceptable rate of ~100 kB/s. But today it has been down to ~1.0 Kb/s. In the info pane of the torrent it says; Seeds: 0 of 114 connected (1 in swarm). In the torrent list it says its connected to 0.092 seeds. Also, this entire time it;s been uploading at ~129 kB/s and the info pane says: Peers 66 of 1174 connected (63 in swarm).

So it's uploading to other people, but not downloading from them, and I have no clue as to why. Can anyone help me figure this out?

How can you tell that? And if there isn't any seed, what was i downloading up until today? And does that mean I won't be able to finish the download?

You were downloading up to today because there were pieces available up to today.

If there is no seed, AND availability remains below 1.0, you won't be able to complete.
