  1. I know this is a simple question but I have downloaded a rather large file that don't have many seeders, and I would like to keep this file available for others. After starting the download, I had to change the finished download location (Almost fill disk) , after the file finished downloading (3 days), the file was moved to the new location, but the program came up with the error message (didn't save it) " it seemed to be saying that it could not find the file for seeding" when trying to seed. As I want to seed this file Any suggestions.
  2. Wondering if anyone can help me with this. My bittorrent wont follow the seeding goal rule most of the time anymore. This never used to be a problem, seems to have crept up on me in the new year. It seems as soon as my computer restarts the seeding rules have not changed, but torrents won't stop seeding anymore. Changing the setting seems to only work if I change the limit speed to something else, apply, then back to zero, apply. I've ran the program as admin to change the setting, no difference in behaviour. Picture of my settings, as you can see a couple torrents have gone higher than my seeding rules define. https://www.dropbox.com/s/ew110k2j5wggnb2/Bittorrent.jpg?dl=0
  3. I understand the sense of sharing/seeding torrents/files if you download them and i absolutely agree with that, but i have a question: Is the seeding process limited in time because i dont want to send these files for the rest of my computers life, so is it like it sends the files for 24 hrs? Thank you for your attention Timo
  4. After download i normally clean up the file..then it will say files missing and wont seed How do i fix this
  5. Hello. I have some trouble with seeding files from bittorrent client. It worked well almost 3 days now but today i wanted to download 25gb file. while seeding 24 torrents and bittorrent started to crush in every 5 minutes. I deleted this new torrent but now it crushes again while seeding files. can u guys help me? I thinks there's some problem in settings. I don't know if it's okay here to ask about this but if we can't solve this problem can anyone tell me how to transfer my completed downloads to another torrent client for seeding? I'm using Bittorrent 7.6.1 (build 272221) 32bit.
  6. I recently updated to the newest BT, El Capitain OS, and reset my computer once. BT loads but when I started it, I had to force a recheck. I come back like three hours later and when I came back all my torrents that finished that I wanted to seed had gone away. Any help?
  7. So, I've been using Bit Torrent for... actually, maybe about three years now that I think about it (Moving on, before the fact that I've spent three years using one application, baffles me into incoherence) and I do apologize if anything you find in this post... distasteful to your good sense of proper file sharing (You'll get what I mean) See the Disclaimer. DISCLAIMER: The only reason I know how to use Bit Torrent, is because I asked a friend to walk me through it and knowing how incapable I am with technology (If I were to describe my skill, without aid, in finding or using applications and services online (Like Steam and all that jazz) I wouldn't say I'm on the same level as a vegetable, but I am at the grandparent level; pretty much useless) he wrote me a double-side looseleaf (and went into crazy detail, he really packed the words onto that page) with instructions, so again, if I'm doing something horribly wrong, (I asked Reddit a few weeks ago, an answer or two popped up and the rest was scorn for how I used Bit Torrent) Please, correct me on the errors of my ways and that alone may be enough to solve whatever issues I may be having. So, really, knowing so little about what I'm doing and just following my buddy's instructions, this is probably going to be the short part of my cry for help. I've rarely ever had problems with Bit Torrent in the past, but as of late, I have been having trouble getting downloads to simply start and when they do, the down and upload speed very quickly shrivel and die, blowing away in the wind. It's been nearly a month now since I've been able to get a single torrent up to 60% before it shit out on me. So, as far as I can tell you, HONESTLY, this is the problem I'm having and I have no deeper knowledge for the cause. I'll be checking back every couple hours of the day, so if you need to know something or post something so you can see the issue for yourself, I can. Just please remember, I'm just two-steps short of being brain-dead when it comes to this stuff, so please be very detailed and patient with me. Otherwise, we'll both just end up frustrated. I appreciate all the help I may receive and to those of you who figure out the issues I'm having, I offer blessings by the hundred fold (DISCLAIMER 2: I am in no way politically, religiously or economically licensed to offer or give out "Real" blessings, but I'll see if I can pull some strings for you kind people) Gratefully yours, Wesley Robert Simpson
  8. I recently created a new torrent file for the first time. Everything seemed to be going fine for a few days. I was seeding and others were downloading. It's a rather large file so I figured it may be at least before anybody completes the download. But suddenly today the status of the torrent is showing "Finished". I'm not sure what that means, but clearly no-one is able to download anymore because there is no activity. Did I do something wrong when I created the file? How can I get it to continue seeding?
  9. Our primary internet link is a Verizon 4G/LTE cell card in a Cradlepoint router. One member of our household takes his laptop to work to use uTorrent to dowload items. When the laptop returns home and reboots, it appears as if seeding restarts even if the client is not explicitly restarted. Obviously we'd like to restrict seeding to when he is not using the 4G link. He says he 'deleted' files so they wouldn't seed; I suspect either he's mistaken, or 'deleting' doesn't stop the seeding? I've read a lot of postings in these forums, and it would appear that only by setting seeding rate to zero can seeding be stopped? Hints or suggestions are welcome. In the meantime, we've put and alert/cap on the cradlepoint router to catch this should it recur.

    Leeches

    I have seen a lot of discussion on leeches, on people not seeding. Here in Australia, we don't have unlimited internet. Heck, some of us can't even get internet. Some of us can only get mobile internet, which means some of us can only afford to pay for around 5GB, with mobile data plans ranging from around 1GB per month to about 15GB per month, where 15GB per month is quite a large data plan. This includes both uploads and downloads. So if we are on a 5GB plan, which is the average plan, we need to seriously consider every single thing we do on the internet, and uploading a 300MB to 1GB file is just a whole lot of data. We might only download any torrents at the end of the month, when our data is about to expire and we have some left. The rest of the month, we switch off uTorrent to limit our data used. Us lucky ones, who live in areas that allow you to have landline internet (which is normal in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and maybe? Adelaide) also have limited amounts of internet. Our plans may range from 50GB to 1TB (where 1TB is a humungous plan and 50GB is not unusual). Again, this includes uploads and downloads. In a household with 4 people, that amounts to 12.5GB per person per month of uploads and downloads. Also, the internet can be veery slow. In my house, I have to wait about half an hour to an hour to download an episode of Game of Thrones. This is normal. So, we download at night. And during the daytime, we switch off uTorrent. That way we can sometimes play games. We can also check facebook without having to wait ages for it to load. Granted, sometimes it takes ages regardless, but at times, it will load quite fast. This is why we limit our uploads. This is why we delete files, switch off uTorrent, don't share as much so that we can download an episode in half an hour not an hour and a half when we forget to download it at night. I've been waiting on an episode while writing this, and in the time it has taken me, it has gotten up to 30%. But I'm just happy I have landline internet. It's a huge improvement to my last place. I was limited to 3GB of data (uploads and downloads) there, and it was so incredibly slow.
  11. Hi guys, I'm new etc. So I Googled for how to stop seeding as soon as a download finishes and found a locked post on here in which the OP asked the same question and was gently 'attacked' for it by an admin. I know there are a lot of leechers out there but some people have genuine reasons for asking. As this is the general discussion section, I wanted to post about this. I am living in Spain for a few months (south of Andalucía, really close to the coast) whilst getting work experience, fully intending to move back to the UK at the end of it (I'll not elaborate on why!) and the only way to get unlimited data in this country is to have ADSL. I can't get a phone line in my building (they won't install more lines because they're getting fibre optics in a few months i.e. when I'm back in the UK) so I called every slightly not-fake sounding WiFi / Satellite company that offered unlimited data but they don't supply my area. So my only option was dongle / mobile broadband. It was an emergency so I purchased a dongle - it came with 600 MB and I had the option of paying €10 per every 1 GB after that up to 5 GB maximum per month. I won't be renewing that. I was then left with mobile broadband. The best tariff available was Vodafone's 10 GB per month offer - 10 GB at 4G speeds then unlimited at 64 kb/s...at a cost of €42 per month. I'm not joking. P2P was not allowed on that tariff. So I decided to move house. Luckily my landlords are incredibly nice and probably appreciated that the estate agent lied about telephone/internet being available and they offered to add me to their business contract with Vodafone because there are better tariffs for sole traders / businesses. Vodafone now offered 40 GB at 4G, another 20 GB at 3G and then unlimited data 'at a significantly throttled speed' which I'm assuming is 64 kb/s because any lower would be criminal. Surely. And this was at a cost of €60 per month. Holding back my tears, I accepted. Then, my landlords offered to pay half of the cost! It just never happens in real life though does it? P2P is allowed on this tariff. Seemed too good to be true. It was too good to be true. The 'download limit' is actually a 'download and upload limit'. In the space of one week I am at 25 GB. Most of that is upload data. Most of what I download is just TV and there are thousands of seeders so I thought 'well, I'm a really dedicated seeder, always have been, so surely I've earned a few months of being able to leech on torrents which are very popular and thereby limiting the damage to my data allowance...' whilst still intending to seed say, less popular torrents as there aren't many movies worth watching these days anyway. So I began my Google hunt for information on blocking uploads. I have since decided I may stream TV shows so that I don't have the guilt of not seeding but I will decide for myself if my circumstances justify a few months of leeching. The point of this biopic is that sometimes, people genuinely have good reasons for not seeding! Perhaps before responding snarkily to a question, maybe first ask for the OP's biopic? Thanks for reading!
  12. I've been researching this and apparently a lot of first-time uploaders have this problem. I have yet to find a working solution so maybe you guys can help. I uploaded my first torrent yesterday and I've been seeding faithfully ever since. BitTorrent 7.9.2 says I'm seeding but the pirate bay shows 0 seeders 2 leechers. I tried downloading the torrent myself and it won't download. How can I fix this? This movie is a foreign film that doesn't exist on any sites I searched and I actually got 2 people to download it on it's first day up. Please help me fix this quickly. In case anyone wants to test it, my torrent can be found here: http://thepiratebay.se/torrent/11247628/...e_Mord.avi
  13. I couldn't find any other topics on this, but sorry if this is a duplicate or a ridiculously basic question. BitTorrent just updated and changed my minimum share ratio to 200%, whereas previously it has always been 150%. This got me to wondering: what ratio should the average conscientious seeder go up to, and what do people here seed to, in practice? Thanks!
  14. Well I only started using BitTorrent today. I downloaded a file and then when it was done downloading it showed "seeding" as the status of the file. I didn't know how torrents work and I only knew about the ratio and how the system works after I stopped the file and removed it. The ratio is now below 0.5 because I'm downloading another file but I won't be making the same mistake again. However, is there a way I can upload the first file now without downloading it again?
  15. After a power crash,my complete files are gone. They remain in the same location on my HD, I have not changed anything. They do not appear in bit torrent and also not seeding anymore. Is there any way to reverse this?
  16. I'm new to this, so I'd appreciate the help and patience since even the simplest things are completely unknown to me. I'm using uTorrent 1.8.4 on Mac, and I have some questions about it. 1. How do I set it to stop seeding/uploading automatically after the download is complete? 2. While downloading the file, it is also uploading. Can that be stopped? If so, how? And will it affect the download in anyway whatsoever? 3. After the download is complete, the torrent file vanishes. Does this mean that the .torrent file is deleted? If not, how do I set it to stop the file from downloading or uploading, but keep it there so I can right-click it and hit the delete .torrent file? Thanks...
  17. Hi, I have a popular torrent (there are 100+ people seeding). I have noticed that nearly everybody I am sharing with takes only a few hundred KB... but one user in the US has uploaded over 70% of the entire file from me. I don't know what this individual is up to, but I suspect he's up to no good. It seems reasonable to assume I have one leecher that is breaking ettiquette and wants 100% of the file from me alone. Not sure why. I want to seed the torrent but I don't want to upload more than about 25% of the torrent to any one inividual (if the torrent is healthy). I can achieve this, although this is not a very good workaround, by setting uTorrent to stop seeding after 100% and hope that more than one person is uploading from me, but I'd rather seed unlimited. In a perfect world, 4 seeders could do 25% each. This will not happen in reality because of the other seeders' bandwidth. Is it possible to have uTorrent calculate 25% of the total torrent size (to be used as an upload cap for all peers) and then enforce the cap if there are more than say 8 seeders? Like I say, I want to seed as much as possible but am a bit wary of one person who's asking for 100% of the file. Thanks,
  18. After a download is complete, my torrent either seeds for only a few miutes, or is stuck on "Initial-Seeding". Simply (if possible), how do I make my torrent Seed automatically? What settings should I use? I'm on the verge of getting kicked out of a torrent group for not seeding enough. I am happy to seed, if only I knew how! My version is BitTorrent 7.8. Thanks!
  19. Whenever I set a maximum upload rate on either the preferences or torrent bandwidth allocation (regardless of value set), the upload rate will got to 1kB/s or stop completely.
  20. Hello, I had this question as I saw a comment somewhere saying that if you are uploading at least 25kb/s, the tracker gives you download priority. Is this true? I've always seed for the fact of sharing, but does it give any benefit? Thanks for your time.
  21. Ok so I'm new to this, only got Bit Torrent yesterday and it took literally ALL day to download a movie. Now it's been saying that it's seeding which I have no problem with, but I tried to play the movie and while it's playing I'm not hearing any audio. I checked volume control for my pc and for the Bit Torrent itself and both are on full volume. Is this because it's seeding or there's a problem with the audio? I tried setting it to use Windows Media player as default but I can't find the file to play anywhere. Also, when it's done seeding and I remove the file from Bit Torrent, where do I find the file for playback??? Thanks for any help!
  22. I have two issues: 1. When files are done downloading they are automatically removed from BT so I have to go to the download folder to see what all has finished. They did not always do this, but I can't seem to get them to stay. 2. When files finish, even when the torrent is still going, I can not open them by double clicking like I did in Windows. I have to right click and choose "Show in Finder," then go to that folder, then click on the file every time I want to listen to a song or something. It is super annoying. BONUS: Does anyone know if the torrents are automatically deleted when the file is automatically removed, or do they go to a mysterious location? My seeding ratio is crazy but I can't find any of the original torrent files. I know seeding is the only way torrents work but if they are hiding them so I have to seed this seems kind of bossy I don't necessarily want to have certain files left to be happened upon later on my computer, like americandadxxxpornparody.torrent, if you know what I mean, LOL! They pretty much nailed the humour. GET IT? Inappropriate puns aside, any help would be appreciated.
  23. I'm trying to return the favor to the community by seeding what I've downloaded. However, when I go to seed a completed download it starts ok. But then theres a red exclamation point in front of the name and the status says, "Error: Invalid download state, try resuming." Resuming doesn't do anything. Or it says,"Error: Files missing from job. Please recheck." The file shows nothing missing. How can I fix these, and how can I prevent this from happening? Please explain clearly as I'm not as adept as some of you. Thanks much.
  24. I have BitTorrent 7.8, build 29626 [32 bit] I have been using BitTorrent for some time now. Everything worked really well until today. I am not very computer literate so I ask you to please be patient with me. I restarted my computer this morning to refresh everything and when I went to BitTorrent it shows 0 completed files. I have many in my folder but they are not in the program. I would like to share what I have downloaded but need your help. I went to my settings and re-established the file connection to my C:\Users\Public\Documents\Bitorrent completed downloads (It was already there but I thought doing it again might help?) Nothing happened. Any help would be appreciated.
  25. I am seeding 3 orginal torrents and they are barely uploading. Here are the 3 file sizes and what I have upload so far. It has taken me over 2 weeks to upload this much. file size / uploaded 125 MB / 1.18 GB 103 MB / 552 MB 114 MB / 936 MB I have a 2 MB upload speed. Speed test said so as so does Bitorrent when I run the test to configure speed. Every torrent has a bunch of peers just sitting there. So there are a bunch of people that want the file, but my bittorrent software will sit there all day and won't upload anything sometimes. 1 of those files always has over 20 or 30 leechers but none of them have 100% of the file. So file availability is always at 1.985 because all anyone has is 98.5% So why do I have all of these peers wanting my file and my bit torrent barely uploads. While watching the peer tab, every once in a while one person might show up that I upload at like 1kb/s for 1 sec. The que says 5bytes and then it will sit idle for hours. Any help please. -crow
