Torrent does not download anything.

So, I'm trying to download this collection of "something" and it's quite big.

It's over 8 Gb but it's a single *.zip file.

I get daily limit of 1 Gb on my data.

After using 1 Gb on it, BitTorrent took all the disk usage (100%)

I can't even close it.

After restarting PC it shows that only 100 Mb is done! All data wasted!

I've done many 10+ Gb download but their files were in small sizes.

Will switching to different torrent client help? Like...BitComet

it's nothing against the rules, he didn't mention downloading anything illegal.

Right, downloading "something" that is 10 gig. It's more than obvious.

the point is, he didn't state anything about what he's downloading. Probably to avoid thread from getting locked / deleted which is still fine according to community guidelines. Matter of the fact is, torrents are not illegal but downloading pirated software through it is. I know most people don't use it for legit stuff but if they are not disclosing it then it's actually quite okay of them to ask. it's specifically mentioned in the forum rules if you read them properly.

Yep heck if the case were that he's even talking about it then 100's of tuber's would be in jail or fined for showing how to do it and as stated there are plenty of legal torrent downloads available out there so no harm no foul here

Report, don't backseat moderate. If this is against your morals.

 

As reply to issue, you can try with another torrent client. There are multiple threads on forums about recommended ones. Was 1gb only download or whole traffic? Because if there aren't enough seeds and you haven't limited usage it will download as much as it can and seed like no tomorrow to all those other hungry leachers.

The parts I highlighted were what you did wrong. To improve download speeds, especially on mechanical drives, some torrent clients will cache the downloaded data into RAM before writing it to the disk.

 

In this case, the 1 GB file was probably small enough to fit into RAM, but it wanted to complete the file before writing it to the disk. Except, the bandwidth limit stopped it. Once it was stopped, it decided to start actually writing everything to disk, but you stopped it before it could complete, so it was only able to write 100 MB before it was stopped by the reboot.

 

See if you can find any caching/memory usage settings in the preferences of your torrent client, and change it to something smaller. Or just wait for the torrent client to finish writing everything to disk before you reboot
