The numbers don't match up


Recommended Posts

I've been downloading a torrent for almost 5 days now. The total size of the file is supposed to be 7.74 GB. At this time, I have downloaded 9.5 GB - at least according to uTorrent. The folder where it says it is downloading it to is only 6.8 MB. What is going on here?

I have searched these forums looking to see if anybody has posted something like this, and have not been able to find anything. I was thinking maybe uTorrent was downloading my stuff to a different location, but that doesn't seem to be the case. I've used Spotlight to search for anything with a name similar to the files I'm downloading and had no luck. I'm really confused, can anybody help shed some light on this question?

Here are a couple screen shots to help show you what's happening...



If it helps, here is a little info about what version I am using and such:

uTorrent, Mac Version (20277)

Mac OSX Version 10.5.8

Let me know if you need anymore info. Thanks everybody, I really appreciate any help you might have here.

On your first screenshot you cut out an important part on the right side. The section called wasted

How big is it and how many hashfails?

As far as the folder appearing smaller, never used the mac version myself, but I don't believe the temp files are counted in get info, Either because they're somewhere else and get moved or they're hidden, Someone else will have to confirm that part.

Thanks for the reply. I didn't cut the image off, I made sure to get the entire window - the site is cutting off. Here's a link to the entire image: http://img.skitch.com/20100825-en38f9iesnc5938ysksduqpyak.png

If you need a screenshot of some of the tabs from the interface, let me know.

Can anyone else let me know where I might look for these temp files paintball9 says may be floating around?
