Don't Download - skip - but it does anyway!

Recommended Posts

Sometimes I download torrents which are a folder of hundreds of files.  For instance, it might have one MP4 file and 300 JPG files.

I tell Utorrent to download JUST the MP4 file, and "don't download" the 300 jpg files.  Utorrent then shows a priority of SKIP next to those 300 files.

The problem is.. that Utorrent downloads bits of those 300 skipped files anyway - which creates a lot of clutter.

Define "bits" ? Show an example. Make sure you did not disable using  partfile in advanced setings.

It should not do that *if* you remember to NOT auto-start the added torrents, and skip those file *before* starting the torrent.
