Lots of Wasted data (no HashFails)


Recommended Posts

Heya all,

I've been using uTorrent for a few weeks now, and in the last week I've noticed a great increase in Wasted data (but there are no Hashfails) on all of the torrents. I.E - opened a new torrent, downloaded only 10m and already 1.5m wasted (torrent has been working for less than an hour). For torrents that had been working for a few days I can get 50m or more of wasted data.

Is this normal?

Is there anyting I can do to reduce this number?

PS: I'm on a 1.5Mbit/128Kbit ADSL.
