mocell Posted October 2, 2014 Report Share Posted October 2, 2014 My understanding with bittorrent is there are three hashes a matdata table with a hash of of each individual piece or chunk and the hash of the matada and the infohash. The infohash is a hash of the matadata hash. If I just use the infohash to get my download and there are two different files active with the same infohash what would happen? since both files have different matada information the would the client just download both sets of files or would that cause a collision? I know with sha-1 this should never happen but if it did. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
