skipped files get downloaded anyway


Recommended Posts

The skipped files aren't being downloaded intentionally. Bittorent clients download the data in pieces, and the pieces take into account the entire contents of the torrent, not the individual files. What's actually happening is the files you are skipping are in the same piece as the files that you want, and must be downloaded in order to receive the full version of the file that you want. That is why it only downloads a small portion of bigger files and full versions of the smaller files. It is the nature of all bittorrent clients, not just utorrent.
