Seeding an orginal torrent and it won't upload


Recommended Posts

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.

Maybe you have too much speed. Have you tried lowering your speed limits to say 30kb/s per file?

I was seeding one like that a couple of months ago. It seemed like the users would only get .02ks/s at a time. I figured out that there was a corrupted file. If Bit Torrent suspects a corrupted file anywhere within the dl, it hesitates.

These are just shots in the dark. I'm new, but I'm experienced.

Thanks for all the help everyone. I'm very glad I signed up for this forum.

I mean all of you reaching out to help or explain has been so so helpful. I can't thank everyone enough. I came here with a problem and got some great great advice and now everything is working as it should. Top notch forum. Really, I just can't tell you how appreciative I am.
