What is the "Open for Seeding" option?


Recommended Posts

Firstly my apologies is this has been covered before. I have searched the forums for the exact answer to this but nothing definite.

So my question is: What is the "Open for seeding" option in the dialogue box when one opens a .torrent and when should it be used?

From my reading of the forums, I've picked up that it should be avoided in all circumstances except if I myself have created the .torrent as it skips the hash checks. Is this right?

Therefore is it not needed for anything else?

Thanks for the great client!

It is an option designed to skip the hash check that's normally made when you add a torrent. It should only be used if you just made the torrent, but forgot to check "Start seeding", or if you accidentally a removed a finished torrent and want to re-add it.
