New to torrents (and don't want to be a "leech")


Recommended Posts

I have been searching and reading through this forum for hours but still cannot get a clear understanding of how seeding works. I have been downloading torrents, then I let them seed to a ratio of atleast 1.0. I burn the files onto DVDs. Is it safe to now delete the file from my computer? How can I tell if a user is currently uploading from my particular file? I wouldn't want to mess up anyone's upload by deleting the file from my computer.

Example: I'm currently seeding a torrent that's almost to a ratio of 1.0. The Seeds column shows 0(79) and the Peers column shows 15(46). Am I the only seed connected?

Sorry...I am SOOO lost and confused. Please help.
