Download File Mmmmmm.torrent
I understand that uTorrent already allows you to edit the files being downloaded when opening the torrent. However, if the torrent finishes, I have to delete it and re-open the torrent file to edit the files being downloaded. This is inconvenient in two ways:
Download File mmmmmm.torrent
2. The torrent rechecks the files already in the folder, for large torrents this is a huge pain because if I just want to add a single small file to a large download, my computer has to re-check that whole large download.
The reason I as is because BitTornado has this function. If you click "Advanced" on a torrent, you can check/uncheck files to be downloaded and even set priorities for certain files to finish earlier than others. Of course, I still use uTorrent because it is the superior client, but it would be nice if this functionality exists.
This is not what I'm asking. I did search for it. I know there's a way to edit the files you want to download. I want to know if there's a way to edit the files WHILE the torrent is downloading or seeding or even stopped in the same way that BitTornado allows you to edit them.
I'm also asking about being able to check/uncheck certain files within these multi-file torrents WHILE they are downloading or seeding. Not at the beginning. Not after reopening. While they are downloading. This is most definitely possible because BitTornado implemented this feature. I am asking if this is possible in uTorrent.
Ok, situation is this.. I have downloaded a torrent which has many files in which I do want and some that I do, so as per usual I select all the files which I do not want and right click to press 'Do not download'.
..However, the files that I specifically asked not to download continue to download anway. Making getting the files I actually want a very consuming experience! I have had limited luck closing utorrent down fully and opening back up again for the correct files to download or not download, however, this method only seems to work occasionally. This problem has only started for me within the last few days and I'm wondering what is going on and when there may be a fix for this.
Please don't reply with "Cross-file pieces" and hoping that we accept this answer. We longtime users know what cross file pieces are. And usually the only extra pieces we needed to download are the ones sharing with the files we don't skip.
Hi, it seems like the recent versions ignore the diskio.use_partfile setting... (Even if 'Pre-allocate all files' is not enabled and (de)selection was made before downloading.) At least in some cases.
This way it's also 'messing up' already downloaded file-sets if some of them wasn't selected to download earlier, upon a reload of the .torrent files into uTorrent and re-scanning of downloaded file-sets (upon a clean install because of an earlier version gone wrong after a year or so). ((De)Selection set the same way as before, of course.)
(BTW, I wonder why the 'Append .!ut to incomplete files' is disabled by default (clean install)? In case the diskio.use_partfile was set to false (or uTorrent behaves like it was) (it is also the default setting after a clean install) and some of the files in a file-set (torrent batch) wasn't selected to download there will be files with empty or random data inside, even after the download has been finished. It is of course normal, but perhaps not obvious for everyone that some of the just downloaded files are (so-to-say) 'corrupt'. I mean, it's not really foolproof.)
Edit 2 (in reply to rafi's next message - I can't post a new message now for being a newly [re]activated member): I was meant in the parenthetical part that with the default settings ('Append...' is disabled and diskio.use_partfile set to false) the mostly blank (not selected to download by user but allocated because of a cross-file piece) files are not distinguishable from the 'right' ones (unless you take a look at the Files tab in uTorrent, of course). It's normal behaviour, isn't it? Just not foolproof. It is less of a concern here, anyway. (I was mentioning this because it can be deceptive even for an advanced user if he expects uTorrent was not ignoring his setting of diskio.use_partfile to true and so all files in a set should be 'right'.)
Here is my most recent download, its a torrent containing three audiobooks, where all but the second lecture is set to skip. The torrent started to download immediately, however, it download only files from the first lecture marked to skip. If its a "Cross-file pieces" its a huge coincidence that all pieces are start\end of anything but what I want to download...
I have had this problem too.. in which the "Skip" is not being skipped. I very rarely skip files, so I have not tested this out conclusively.. but.. I would suggest that setting the priority of all the files you DO want to HIGH would achieve what you want.
Out of the box, the default settings should be fine for simple use. Although one thing you may want to update is the download directory for completed torrents. This can be set with the following command:
To add a torrent you will use transmission-remote and pass the torrent file location as a parameter with the -a option. The file location can either be a local path to a downloaded torrent file or a direct URL to the online location.
In the download list output you can see that each loaded torrent has an ID in the left-hand column. You can use this ID to select a torrent by using the -t command followed by -r to remove.
µTorrent is the world's most popular BitTorrent client. Most of the features present in other BitTorrent clients are present in µTorrent, including bandwidth prioritization, scheduling, RSS auto-downloading and Mainline DHT (compatible with BitComet). Additionally, µTorrent supports the Protocol Encryption joint specification (compatible with Azureus 18.104.22.168 and above, BitComet 0.63 and above) and peer exchange. µTorrent was written with efficiency in mind. Unlike many torrent clients, it does not hog valuable system resources. Various icon, toolbar graphic and status icon replacements are available, and creating your own is very simple. µTorrent also has support for localization, and with a language file present, will automatically switch to your system language. If your language isn't available, you can easily add your own, or edit other existing translations to improve them!
File Downloads Location and Performance: By Default, uTorrent Portable will download files to uTorrentPortable\Data\downloads and store torrents in uTorrentPortable\Data\torrents. To change this, enter the options and enter the path \ for the root directory of your portable device, \Documents for the documents directory on your device, \Documents\downloads for the X:\Documents\downloads directory, etc. Note that downloading files directly to a flash drive may slow down your other running portable apps. uTorrent does not support relative paths, so moving paths will require readjusting your download and torrent file locations manually.
If you've spent any time on the internet since the early 2000s, you've probably heard of BitTorrent, the popular file-sharing tool used for movies, programs, and other large chunks of data. But BitTorrent is a bit more complex than the file-sharing tools that came before it, so it helps to acquaint yourself with its ins and outs before using it. Our guide can help you get started.
When you download a file from the internet, you're typically downloading it directly from a server somewhere. How fast you download that file can vary depending on the server's location, speed, and how many people are trying to download the file at the same time. So, while you might have a 200Mbps connection from your internet provider, you may download a file much slower than that if the server providing the file is slow or getting hammered with requests.
Instead of downloading a file from a single server, with BitTorrent you download pieces of that file from other users across the globe who have the same file on their PC (hence peer-to-peer). The file or group of files you download is called a torrent, sharing those files is called seeding, and the group of people you download from is called a swarm. The more people connected to a given swarm, seeding a file, the faster you'll be able to download that file.
BitTorrent is commonly known as a piracy tool, thanks to its efficiency in sharing large movie files, music albums, software, and porn. Using BitTorrent isn't inherently illegal, and the protocol has seen many legitimate uses as well, including the sharing of open-source software like Linux, delivering updates for programs like World of Warcraft(Opens in a new window), syncing files between computers Dropbox-style, and sharing media released over BitTorrent by the artists themselves(Opens in a new window). Microsoft even uses similar tech to optimize Windows updates(Opens in a new window).
All that said, BitTorrent is often used for piracy, since its efficiency, decentralized nature, and popularity have produced a bustling community around sharing those files. If there's something you want to download, there's a good chance someone's sharing it with BitTorrent, legally or not. To be clear, we at PCMag do not condone piracy. If you use our instructions for that purpose, you do so at your own risk.
Downloading files with BitTorrent is a bit more complicated than just clicking a link in your web browser. Most browsers don't have built-in support for BitTorrent, so you need a specific program, called a BitTorrent client, that knows how to download and assemble the pieces of a file in a torrent.
You just double-click the Torrent and tell your OS to open it in the client software. From there, you will need to tell the software where to download your file and you may also be able to prioritize it among whatever other things you want to download at the same time. These are client-specific steps, however. 041b061a72
