Guide: Torrent Batches

Post by takenoko » Sat Aug 08, 2009 4:16 am

First and foremost, if you were in the middle of downloading when the torrents got batched, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO START OVER FROM SCRATCH

To RESUME:

1) Start the batch torrent
2) Stop the batch torrent
3) Copy over the partial files from the individual torrents into the batch folder
4) Resume the batch torrent, it should detect your partial downloads and restart them for you

Batch torrents are great since they reduce stress on the tracker and make it less likely that one shots which are less likely to be seeded will be seeded

They're easier for people to seed, we try to keep each batch around the size of a DVD

Plus with modern torrent programs, you can start a batch and select which files you want to download. How this is done varies with each program

I'll add,, some Torrent clients are stupid and will not recheck these files,, but almost they still have function for manual rechecking... So after copy these files look for recheck/rehash function.
