satyr Posted April 5, 2011 Report Share Posted April 5, 2011 Hel all, I am relatively new to using .torrents and although I am quite knowledgeable in computing, I do not understand a few things regarding basics of torrenting. As the topic description says, I am interested for example about how moving/renaming files (or renaming the .torrent file itself) affects other users (i.e. "peers") of some "swarm".You see, I like to have things organized my way (e.g. files named and structured into directories as I want to) and not as they were downloaded, and therefore I usually rename both, the files downloaded with BitTorrent and the.torrent file itself (actually, I rather create a new one). Oh and regarding creating a new one, usually I don't include various "FAQ.txt" and such nonsense files, so in the end there are no more multiple files under "\Some_movie\" directory, but rather just "Some_movie.avi" for which I create the .torrent.So my question is, after you announce to trackers this new .torrent which of course contains - at least one - identical files (by content, not by file name) as already existing .torrent files available to download (and findable by search engines) on the Internet, will the "community" know that this is actually the same file? Will it be included into the respective "swarm"?Because I noticed, that if there were e.g. 20 seeds in the swarm for one particular .torrent, after I rename the files (and/or move them), and create a new .torrent, then it's just me who's seeding.Thanks in advance, satyr Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
