Re-Opening Torrent to Seed-100% Previously D/L file became only 90+ %


Recommended Posts

I just joined this forum today and decided to post a strange problem that occurred a while ago.

I know that if the file(s) in a torrent are moved to another directory/folder, and the torrent is re-loaded, utorrent will look in the designated default download directory for the existence of the file and if it is not there, it will download the file from a 0% status.

What happened in my case, though, is a different situation. I believe on three different occasions, I re-opened a torrent that had been deleted from the utorrent listing. In each case, I had the complete file or all of files for that torrent, and with the proper extensions, ie: avi, mpg, etc, and in the proper directory/folder. When I re-opened/loaded the torrent so as to seed the file(s), utorrent checked to see if the file existed and the % indicator in the "done" column did not go to 100%, as is usually the case, but instead stopped at 90 something % and when I immediately checked the actual directory, I saw that the file's extension had been modified so as to go back to the uncompleted !ut state (example... it went from movie.avi back to movie.avi.!ut). Luckily, there were still other peers/seeders and I was able to again get the complete file. Then I became a seeder, as I had originally intended. BTW, the files involved were all large files, so, it is not as though utorrent was actually showing the file going from -0- to 90+ percent because it was showing it as it was being downloaded. It was showing that I only had 90+ percent of the file and then the downloading started, and took a while until I got the remainder of the file.

Does anyone know why this happened, that is, why I lost part of a complete file when all I did was try to seed what had been a complete file, and how to prevent it from happening again?

Now, if I want to re-load a torrent to seed a file, I first make a backup copy of that file before re-loading the torrent. (Yes, I know, all of my files should be backed up, but, I am very low on hard drive space -- both internal and external drives. -- I hope to get new external drives in the future).

Thanks for any info.

It's possible there was nothing wrong with the file... where was it stored? Some instances of this happening occur with http://utorrent.com/faq.php#Incompatible_software or RAM / other hardware troubles.

Where were the missing pieces from? The beginning/end of the file? That can usually be attributed to a media player/ library/ manager messing with tagging information.

Thanks for your reply, jewelisheaven.

The file was stored on my C: drive in a subdirectory/subfolder -- short folder/filenames so that should not be a problem.....as is the case, in general (not necessarily with bit torrent u/l d/l) if the combo subfolders/filename is too long. I don't remember the actual name but as I said previously, the file was in the correct folder specified in the open torrent pop-up box.

As for the incompatible software (NVIDIA in the linked faq)...I don't use a software firewall but instead use a hardware firewall...Verizon's supplied router/firewall for my FIOS internet service. Also, I just looked and I presently have 8 torrents actively u/l and d/l right now and the memory usage for uTorrent.exe is in the range of approx. 19,320K. My computer has 2 GB memory, so that does not seem to be a problem.

Also, as I said, the problem only happened three times, and that was a while ago.

I think when I lost part of the previously complete file, the part lost was from the end of the movie, but I'm not really sure -- it was not recently, and I didn't really pay too much attention. (I merely copied the re-created !ut file and deleted the .!ut from the copy and played it -- I generally use Media Player Classic but sometimes use other players.

Btw, I'm not sure, but I think that I had changed the attribute of the complete file to read-only and nevertheless it was overwritten so that it was no longer a complete file when I re-opened the torrent so as to seed the file.

Thanks, again.

If you look the Files tab for that torrent, where the missing pieces are will usually tell you what the problem is. If the missing pieces are in the middle of the file, your file and their file does not match up. If the missing pieces are at the start or end of the file, that usually means you're seeding a slightly different torrent and the hash pieces don't match up exactly at the start & end of files.

I downloaded HiJack This and Systeminternals' Process Explorer.

Please note that I have installed and updated a lot of software after the problem...so, any you might notice lots of stuff that I did not have at the time. BTW...on 04/17/2008 I was d/l some freeware that led me to a sight that did a scan and suggested I update Winamp, Quicktime, RealPlayer, I think Shockwave to later versions to eliminate security holes in the earlier versions. I did so...but that site supposedly also said it was creating a system restore point...it did not...instead, all of my system restore points before 04/17/2008 were deleted and now, even my own newly created restore points are not retained...only retained are system check restore points .. one or two only... I checked my system restore points settings and I still have the max. 12% disk space setting for system restore...so, I don't know the problem (I'm low on hd space, but not too low, I don't think).

Anyway...here are the logs:

PC Tools and Webroot may be at fault. I don't see any injected DLLs other than those that should cause problems.

So start there... otherwise, you may need to uninstall O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ftutil2] "rundll32.exe" ftutil2.dll,SetWriteCacheMode

Also I hope you're aware My WebSearch is commonly classified as ad-ware. It also appears to have added several toolbars to your IE... and added A LOT OF browser BHOs

Hi jewelisheaven

Thanks for the input...I don't want to get too much off topic (not utorrent related), but I actually added most of the toolbars and browers helpers...much more so to Firefox than IE (Freecorder (captures audio from my integrated sound card --other stand-alone programs don't recognize the card), Classical Music Radio (streaming from the internet)- Firefox helpers: active tab in red, a separate download status and history bar (in addition to the pop-up window), two separate streaming video capture helpers, etc.). Btw, if you are interested in any of these, let me know and I'll try and look up the website(s), if possible, and give the link(s) to you. I almost never use IE except as a fallback if there is a problem loading Firefox. However, my wife and daughter use AOL which uses it's own form of IE, although that does not have the various toolbars and browers helpers. (My wife and daughter are supposed to share a notebook computer (Vista -- the desktop is XP Windows Media Center 2005 -- actually XP Pro) that I bought for them....but my sometimes daughter uses my desktop because she can't do certain things with her itunes/itunes store on the notebook --- and my wife finds the desktop more comfortable (I wanted to buy them another desktop..not a notebook, since it is almost never taken from the house..but they wanted a notebook!!).

Yes, I heard that about MyWebSearch...that toolbar I did not add. It did so itself...maybe as part of some software install process. It's in the IE that I don't use so it doesn't bother me (although perhaps the IE process runs in the background anyway even if the IE browser is not opened and maybe MyWebSearch is somehow active).

Anyway, thanks again.

;) heh, makes sense. I'm amazed computers work with all that installed sometimes :P

Did you get a chance to try running without those two programs installed? Spyware Doctor has some reports of previously being the culprit in cases like this, but there's no sure way to check unless you try uninstalling it. If you've got updates feel free to post them below.

Hi jewelisheaven --

I uninstalled both MyWebSearch and PCTool's Spyware Doctor. I didn't even realize that I still had Spyware Doctor on my computer. :lol: Webroot, btw, is Spysweeper, which I actively use and like.

I read that System Restore automatically deletes old restore points to free up space when the drive is too full. That could have been the problem that I encountered. I often go from having sufficient room to being almost full when doing video converting, etc. Then I might burn the video(s) to DVD + R DL and, voila, space is freed up!! :)

I have not experienced the uTorrent problem that led me to start this thread for a while now, and besides, I'll try to remember to make an additional copy of any file(s) that that I want to re-seed. So, I guess that everything is really ok.

BTW, I have a question: In uTorrent, the IP address of each active/on-line seeder/peer is shown. Is there anyway of easily contacting any them since only their IP addressess and not their email addresses are shown. It seems that only the original seeder can be contacted, but only by a thread post or PM on the torrent's website.

Sorry, but no :( The developers don't plan to make uT any more than a bittorrent client. While I agree with this decision and share the philosophy it does indeed become some of a problem if you want to "talk" to someone on that awesomely rare torrent you run. My best advice is to post a comment as you mention on the site you got the torrent from... and yep even messaging the uploader sometimes gets results. Also remember if it's one of those "super rare" things you like to keep alive you don't have to keep it seeded all the time. You can stop it and start it back up whenever you want / have free bandwidth. I keep most of those types of torrents in PAUSE mode in my client 1) because I always have a uT up 2) because I rarely turn off this computer and 3) because it allows me to see directly when there are peers on the swarm. While the popular open trackers show peers not always are they real/up-to-date. If peers connect to me I can assume they're real and want my data... so I rotate 2 or 3 of them a day. I've even popped onto a torrent before where there were no seeds for MONTHS and people were sitting @ 98% and promptly after seeding all of them there was 1 or more comments at the site saying "thank you" :D

I'm glad you don't have this regularly... just remember this troubleshooting if it does come back. But hopefully it won't come back right ;)
