    A download only option or a second limited speed option in the Scheduler would be nice. I'd like to able to have Full Speed during the night. Limited Speed when I'm not home. And Download Only Speed when I am at home.

    Hi There, I used the mobile client and it's working great & want to purchase the pro, but just want to know if there is any plans for a "Stop or Exit" after download/uploads complete for the mobile app in the future? Precisely like the WIndows Client's "Stop & Exit Setting".

    I get the "No incoming connections" triangle in the bottom right corner of the BitTorrent client and my torrent doesn't load.. The problem is probably not in the firewall as I have tried it with turning it off, but I'm not too good with this kinda stuff.

    hi there, my first post on this site, please be gentle with me. I had a look around and couldn't see anyone else with this request, if it is a double post, please let me know. I think that the title pretty much says it all. What I would like is to be able to set individual directories for software to be moved to once the torrent is complete, dependent on the label that is given. For example, when it is finished downloading, and ready to be seeded, usually it will move at all to a single directory, regardless of whether it is a movie or software or a TV series. I would like it to be able to automatically move anything that is labelled "movie" to my m:\movies\ folder, and any software to F:\programs\ and any music to my M:\music\folder - and so on, and so forth, once the current is completed downloading and ready to be seeded. hopefully, I have explained myself clearly enough for you to understand what I'm getting at.

    Looking through how TorrentSync works, I wouldn't think you guys are far from making some sort of hosting protocol, where websites can be hosted using the torrent protocol rather than at a central location. Would be great for both the reliability of the torrent protocal, and its difficulty in shutting down. You could give a "folder" which contains part of a website to another computer without giving them full access to every file, rather only an encrypted portion. So people could "seed" the website without having admin access to it. Will

    Under Preferences, Bandwidth, and Global Upload Rate Limit, I have Bittorrent configured to limit uploads to a certain speed. For whatever reason, the Bittorrent software completely disregards the limit I put it on and uploads at whatever speed it wants to. I searched online, and along with "Apply rate limit to transport overhead" under Global Rate Limits Options, it was suggested that I check "Apply rate limit to uTP Connections". So I did. Problem is, my download speeds go from 2MB/s+ to less than 100kB/s, even though my download limit is set to unlimited under Global Download Rate Limiting. So I have two questions: why doesn't the Bittorrent software bother to respect the limits that I put on uploads, and why does the software drastically throttle my download speeds when I apply rate limiting to uTP connections even when I have absolutely no limit on download speeds? This seems like a pretty major design flaw. I've tried searching for quite a while now and I've been unable to answer the question and find a solution that works. I would greatly appreciate any help anyone could give (or a recommendation on a torrent client that actually works properly if there is no solution to this problem). Thank you.

    Any system that will allow true distributed messaging will not allow the user to retain control. As long as there is anonymity and good encryption, this isn't a real problem in my opinion.

    I cannot get the qr code to scan on my samsung s4, it just looks at my computer screen, and keeps saying scanning. Anyone have any success with this? And, while I am here, is it possible to sync two different folders on my phone to one folder on my computer?

    Use a VPN provider located in Europe, and use tor to search for torrents, but i agree with Mrwounderful, it is more likly that you are not being up front. But just in case you are, read torrentfreak.com and here is a good story from them http://torrentfreak.com/finland-writes-history-with-crowdsourced-copyright-law-130722/

    Would you mind sharing the VPN? Big reason for this question is to find out of the VPN says they do not keep logs. How else would the VPN know who allegedly connected to what, at what time, and used x-bandwidth if the VPN does not keep logs? Thanks! ADDED Also are you for real that a letter was sent to your VPN and they in turn contacted you? Just as likely you are paid by HBO to post in forums, or some contractor paid by HBO. Can you post that email?

    XP installs BT into "ApplicationData" folder because its a "system" folder. System folder entries are shared with other software programs, within the Application Data area. That's why is works in conjunction with your browsers. Software in the "Programs" area dont interact with other programs in the "programs" area. As far as a blank icon, I've never had that happen with BT, but I've had it happen with other icons and its a taskbar issue. Sometimes a reboot fixes, other times I would check then uncheck the "hide icons" in taskbar properties to get the icon to come back.

    Conduit is malware that hooks it's self into all your browsers' settings and registry in a way that makes it very, very hard to remove, it's also a useless search engine, the results are very poor and stuff like Bing Google and Yahoo are the only search engines anyone ever needs. Anyone who supports them after I said this is working for them, you cannot fool me.

    Harold is right about "don't download." Your step-by-step is: Open the BitTorrent interface, then press F5, then select the "Files" tab. Once in the files, Highlight the file(s) that are being dl'd and right click for the menu. Then select "Don't Download". That will stop the dl, but allow seeding to continue. You can also browse the other features on the "Details" interface.

    More and more of the downloads in the Texts section of on my favorite public domain site, archive.org, are only available as EXE files. I understand many of these have been created by torrent2exe, which makes downloading easier for those without BitTorrent installed. I am cautious about downloading and running EXE files, because of the possible risks of malware and virus. How do others view these risks? I have BitTorrent Plus installed. Does this provide me any protection? Thanks

    Is it currently possible or does the potential exist to utilize a computer as a mesh node through Sync? If I understand correctly, Sync requires an external router. If direct WiFi connection could be used, it would be more ideal to send file via an ad-hoc without syncing - similar to Bluetooth transfer. My idea would essentially be an off-grid Mega.co.nz, where routers are not available.

    Unfortunately the OS X client does not work with a PowerPC running 10.5.8. But there is a PowerPC version for Linux, so why not for Mac OS? Because of this, the BitTorrent Sync is useless for users of PowerPCs, but there are a lot.

    Just says 'Checked 0.0%' in the download bar area. Been that way for two days now. Is there anyway to fix it? I removed the downloads i had and re-did the process with new torrents only to have the same result.

    Are you downloading via a free Proxy server that's now not there? Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling? Note that you might need to manually delete some files \ folders after performing the uninstall to get your machine 'very' clean before reinstall. Check here for example: "C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming" on a Windows Vista \ 7 \ 8 computer, delete any Bittorrent directories found, you may need to enable viewing of hidden files and folders to do this. Also check: C:\Program Files (x86) and or C:\Program Files and kill any Bittorrent directories there.

    I think I found an answer to some of you here. I tried to start a torrent on tpb before I opened bittorrent, when i opened it there was a new version (7.8), so I updated it normally, it closed and opened back again, but then the torrent wasn't there anymore and when I tried to click on the magnet link again bittorrent said the torrent was already on the my list etc. It was indeed, but I believe it was labeled as "hidden" and stopped automatically after the update. so you just need to go there on the left side of bittorrent on the "Labels" part and look for the hidden torrents. then it's simple, just right click on the torrent, go to "labels" there and unclick in "hidden".

    Whenever I drag a completed download onto a device conversion, it seems to save the converted file in my C drive (c:/Users/Owner/AppData/Roaming/BitTorrent/media/<filesenduphere>) ; however, I wish to change this location (C drive is rather small). Didn't find the option under preferences, wondering how to do this. Thanks in advance, K

    I think the problem with the "V:\" drive is similar to my problem. When I put "C:\Torrent" as the default location, my downloads will end up in "C:\Torren". When I put in "C:\Torrents" they will end up in "C:\Torrent". So it seems like the last character is cut off for some reason. I'm currently running BitTorrent 7.7 (build 27987) and this is a recent problem, it worked fine in an earlier version.

    Before re-installing restart your computer, check whether any BT leftover files are there in 'program files' and 'appdata' folders. If so, delete them(even if its just an empty folder with a name related to Bit torrent).

    I just bought BitTorrent Plus and was wondering if there is any way to set, or change, the file location for converted files. It automatically drops the files on the C: drive.I like to drop the converted files right on to the USB drive I use.

    Actually, I figured it out, and I may as well explain it if that's ^^^ the response the moderators are gonna give, in case someone like me tries to google this in the future. You have to check the box so that torrents don't start automatically. This way, a box comes up, asking if you really want to add the file. This box can be expanded, to see what you've always seen, the whole checklist business. Torrents downloading automatically? Default settings.

    Hello, can someone tell me or point me to a page that explains how... Well I got a file from the community, but I took it out of the Bit Torrent program , and I want to seed it for everyone again. How do I get Bit Torrent to understand I want to seed that file again? Thanks!

    This indicates an issue that is tracker specific. You would need to contact thebox for support on that. (The "Failure" word at the start is what tells us it's not in BitTorrent) Edit: You can double-click or extend the status column to get the full error message.

    BitTorrent writes data to a resume state file provided you let it shut down on its own time. If you let it shut down properly, it will resume automatically when you start it again.

    I'm experiencing the exact same problem. Is there a solution to this. I get the orange triangle icon in the bottom right handside for long periods of time and then the green icon for long periods of time in the same place. I've also noticed this when I run the bittorrent tests "Port is not open ( You are still able to download) can someone explain or even come up with a solution. Thank You
