can low disc space corrupt files?


Recommended Posts

utorrent is the most useful program on my computer, and i use it ALOT. in fact, i have an entire 120 gb drive reserved for it. when it gets near to full, i notice error messages popping up next to the downloads saying that there is not enough disk space. my question is that if i free up some space, and allow the download to complete, is there a slight chance that some of the data might have become corrupt when the download stopped to display this message? (like maybe the subtitles wont work and therefore i would delete and refuse to redownload a perfectly good torrent on the assumption that it did not include subtitles in the first place)

if this is not the case, then what is the purpose of the pre-allocation option (which i have turned off right now)?
