Initial-seeding?

Recommended Posts

Ok I know this is probably a very stupid question but I am still learning about BT. I have made a torrent that I am seeding in Initial-seed mode will I am the only seeder right now and there are about 25 peers trying to download the torrent is over 4GB. Sine I have made this torrent and I am the only seeder right now superseeding is this best way right? I will get this torrent uploaded to everyone faster? Thanks and have a good day.

It won't necessarily be faster, but it means that you'll have to upload less to get the all the data out. Normally, you end up uploading anywhere from 150% to 200% of the file's size before a new seed is created in a swarm. With initial seeding, you can probably get around 105% to 110% data uploaded before all the pieces are available in the swarm (2.0+ availability), in which case you've basically done your job seeding.
