Utorrent taking up excessive disk space


Recommended Posts

Okay this is my first post and I apologize if this is a dumb question.

Is there any way to stop utorrent from reserving the full amount of a file when it begins downloading it?

What I mean is.. lets say I download a 4gb file, utorrent will take up the entire 4gb's before I even have 10% downloaded. Is this the way it was built or is there some option im just not finding?

Because the problem that I am having is that I'll get to 50% on a 6gb file and then people will stop seeding, so even though I've only downloaded 3.0 gb's the full 6 will be taking up space that I need.

Sorry if this sounded confusing, I have a hard time explaining myself sometimes.
