eeipcy Posted January 30, 2008 Report Share Posted January 30, 2008 Hi,I use a lot of sites that issue updates to torrents often, they use torrentzip to make sure that the hashes of zip files are consistant across platforms. One major problem with using torrents to update many files is that the latest files added are never in contagious blocks. Therefore people end up downloading large amounts of data that they already have, needlessly.One way to solve this would be to index files based on modified time, so that the newest files added would be in a contagious block at the end of the torrent file. (The other boring way would be to rename all the files so that all newly added files are in numerical/alphabetical order, but this is not always possible.)A new tickbox option when creating .torrent files in uTorrent would be nice, so that it would add files in to the torrent file in order of their last modified time. Thanks in advance, eeipcyP.S. This is not my idea, but I do think that it is a brilliant idea. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
