  1. You make the torrent on your computer, then you seed it on ANY internet connected computer. It doesn't need to be a dedicated server.
  2. If you don't have the file, you can't make a torrent of it. That's why the torrent making programs require you to have the file.
  3. You can't finish because the torrent isn't seeded. You'd need to contact the site you got the torrent from for a reseed.
  4. In the BitTorrent interface under the info tab.
  5. What's the listed availability for the torrent?
  6. You're already downloading as fast as your connection supports.
  7. You're getting your connection's rated speed. speedtest.net shows in *bit/sec BitTorrent shows in *byte/sec
  8. Usage support for completed downloads is beyond the scope of these forums.
  9. Nothing we can do if the tracker is down.
  10. No one is downloading it yet or it's overseeded to the point that you're not needed yet.
  11. if the %appdata% location doesn't match up exactly then that doesn't actually work either. This is the procedure for migrating large groups instead of using a resume.dat file copy like yours.
  12. Don't move the .torrent files around once the torrents are in your client.
  13. Looks like either the torrent isn't actually seeded or something in your setup is blocking.
  14. As long as availability is below 1.0, your download won't finish.
  15. I didn't ask for the creation date. I asked for the availability.
  16. What is the listed availability for the torrent?
  17. 1> If you don't specify to remove and delete the .torrent file, that .torrent file will remain. 2> If they aren't loaded in BitTorrent then the old .torrent files being removed won't affect it. You probably deleted the entire contents of %appdata%\bittorrent which would delete the program, its configuration AND all the .torrent files, not just the .torrent files and configuration like you thought it would.
  18. Close it before shutting down the computer or set windows to not re-open programs you had running when it shut down.
  19. Seeding happens by either the person who made the torrent or people who downloaded it. In the case of torrents that won't complete, they are no longer seeded.
  20. The .torrent file is metadata and can be exchanged independently of the client. The original torrent was made and was likely seeded at one time.
  21. Right click on the column header to get a menu to enable any columns you don't have
