1.8.5 Torrent always missing ONE piece


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm having trouble getting perfect completion on one of my torrents. uTorrent reports the files have downloaded 100%, but the second file's first piece is always missing if I do a force recheck.

Once the recheck is done, I'll start the torrent again and the piece would be downloaded successfully... but upon a force recheck again, the uTorrent reports the first piece is missing.

I do have the first file in the torrent set to skipped, could this be an issue?

Yes, same piece over and over again - It's an AVI file.

The file list looks like:

File1.sub (Skipped)

File2.avi (this one is missing a small slice at the beginning)


File4.avi ...

I've set to download the .sub file ... going to see if this fixes the issue.

Thanks DWK for the explanation.

Is the file truly corrupt - or is it that the hash algorithm cannot handle these cross-file pieces? From searching on the forums it seems the file IS downloaded, just the force recheck doesn't take into account the cross-file pieces correct?

Thanks again :)
