low ratio even though my upload to download ratio is 1:1


Recommended Posts

I'm relatively new to torrents. Please excuse this question if it's dumb but after searching for an hour I haven't found the answer online.

I have downloaded maybe 20gb over two months of torrenting. I have continuously seeded everything I downloaded, except for a few movies I really didn't want to keep. Thus I am uploading about 20 files and downloading about 5 right now. When I look at my upload to download ratio it is 1:1 almost any time I check it.

Yet the tracker is telling me (at two different sites) that my ratio is falling. It's now at about .5.

Please explain to me how this is so and how to improve it.
