That means the total speed of the torrent after the 10 get done downloading the file is 1100kbps. There is no such thing as a Stupid Question! People are considerate enough to share their stuff you can repay them back by seeding back what you take so others can enjoy it as well. As stated earlier, this method applies to the uTorrent client, but you may be able to apply a similar method with one of the many other torrent clients available. Alternatively try , , , , , , ,. In general, however, you can avoid seeding in mostly the same way with almost any torrent client.
This is known as being a seed or seeding. It is good torrent etiquette to allow your computer to seed to other peers needing your file contribution. The more seeders there are on a torrent the faster the torrent is. Go back into Preferences and click Bandwidth. Seeding is the process of connecting to a torrent when you have a complete file.
Once your client finishes downloading, it will remain open until you click the Finish button or otherwise close it. Seeding only increases that exposure. If you are on private trackers do not use this technique as it will count as a hit n run and you will probably get in trouble. In general, BitThief will do best with files that have a lot of seeders. If so, can I just click on 'stop downloading' once it reaches 100% because I don't want to take up much space with pointless extra bits and pieces? We are a thriving community dedicated to helping users old and new understand and use torrents. Seeding is where you leave your BitTorrent client open after you've finished your download to help distribute it you distribute the file while downloading, but it's even more helpful if you continue to distribute the full file even after you have finished downloading. It also sees several more users also have this file.
All questions are welcome such as to how to change oil, to how to tie shoes. You download from peers, which are other persons' computers like yours that contribute pieces of the complete file until you have downloaded the whole thing. Beyond that, it's up to you if you can spare the bandwidth. You should seed until at least 1. Privacy and Security Concerns One major concern with using a torrenting site is with privacy and security.
The micro torrent client is lightweight and can be installed very easily. A representative from the Electronic Frontier Foundation noted in that both downloading and sharing were illegal. For example, if you start a BitTorrent client and it tells you that you're connected to 10 peers and 3 seeds, then the swarm consists of you and those 13 other people. Most of the time while you are downloading a torrent file, you are also uploading certain of the pieces you already have to those in your peer group who need them. As you can see from the example images below, the data tracker at the bottom shows that I have little to no data going out: This is true even with fully downloaded file that would normally start seeding automatically.
But likewise, it'd probably take at least a little longer to download it in the first place if you're uploading slowly while downloading it. If there were no seeds, a particular torrent would die out because over time, pieces will become missing and no one could then obtain a complete file. Periodically throughout the transfer, your machine will check in with the tracker, telling it how much you've downloaded and uploaded, how much you have left before finishing, and the state you're in starting, finished download, stopping. At first every single leecher is trying to get the file from the uploader which if there are 10 leechers then each leecher is approximately getting the file at 10kbps. Follow-up questions at the top level are allowed. Let's say the 10 people finish downloading the torrent from the uploader.
Joke responses at the parent-level will be removed. It scans your system and sees that you have a file that someone has requested. Which the speed of the torrent will hardly go up because the leechers will always outnumber the seeder.

The server has a host of several computers on the network connected to it at a time. If you have found a method not listed here, feel free to leave us a comment in the comments section below! So if you need to choose, stop the seeding torrents that have the most seeds and highest availability between all the peers first.
BitThief was started as more of a research project, which is partially why the program is not as well supported and may or may not work, depending on your operating system. Daniel matches your request with our community of online experts. Let's say someone uploads a torrent to a site and that person seeds at 100kbps. Remember, the tracker doesn't know anything of the actual contents of a file, so it's important to follow through and seed a file if you upload the torrent to a tracker. Ostensibly, this means that you can use Torrent Stream to torrent without having to seed, as seeding requires you to seed a file you have downloaded on your computer. When it completes you switch to a seeder and dedicate that stream to simply uploading. Everyone here is willing to help.
Click Options, then Preferences or just press Ctrl+P Now click Queueing and change all 3 Seeding Goal values to 0. All questions are welcome - except clear trolls, please don't be that guy. Peers don't like to share to peers that don't share back. We only have a few, but they are important. A torrent file resides in pieces over many computers. Secondly, after a couple of my movies finished downloading the status changed to 'finished' yet the 'uploaded' column still increased over night from 1. If you have to, you can stop or pause a seeding torrent for awhile and restart it later.
