Disk overloaded


Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I'm aware that there have been numerous topics about this subject over the years, but none of the information supplied therein has provided me with a solution.

When the download speed of my torrents approach 2.0 MB/s, the warning 'Disk overloaded' pops up and as a result, the speed falls back down. As it seems, this is a problem that has started occurring under the latest iteration of the programme. I've had it before, but I believe I solved it by turning the Windows caching option off. Now it's back, and it's very annoying.

I've tried the following:

- Overriding the cache size to a more than sufficient size,

- Re-enabling Windows caching,

- Clearing out more space on the HDD.

All to no avail. The torrent I'm currently downloading is also not of exceptional size. Nor do I have that many torrents open. None of this should matter, though, as I've had hundreds of torrents active at a combined connection speed of 16 MB/s before this version.

Possibly relevant screenshots:

I am having very similar problems. µTorrent inexplicably fails to write the contents of its cache for often up to several hours resulting in slow to no download speed.

I have also done as above as well as checking my advanced IDE settings had DMA enabled (they do) which make me think there is a bug within µTorrent.
