downloading the skipped files


Recommended Posts

How big are these files that get partially downloaded even though you skipped them? And what is the piece size of the torrent?

If a piece that overlaps 2 (or more) files is needed for only 1 file it will still be downloaded completely. So even if you skip certain files they might be (partially) downloaded because they are (partially) part of a piece you need for another file.

When a torrent with a piece size of 4MB (for example) has been made properly piece overlap could explain up to 8MB (two times the size of a piece) download of a skipped file.
