HELP...

I have restarted my PC. The 46664 Fancourt DVD torrent is still on my desk top. It has not been removed. It reads done, share ratio 96%.

It is neither uploading or downloading. It just sits there. How do I get it to upload or seed to you guys?
There seems to be nothing in settings.

Knowing which bit torrent client you are using would no doubt help John.

I don't understand client.

I am using BitTorrent version 4.0.1
There are two drop down menus - File & View.

File: Open Torrent File. Pause/Play. Quit.

View: Show/hide finished torrents. Log.
View: Settings.

Saving.
Downloading.
Network
Misc.

That's it I'm afraid.

John, aren't you in pause mode? I don't know exactly client you use (I use BitTornado), but the principle should be the same. In BitTornado is possible to stop download, close BT client, restart comp etc. etc. Then, if I want to continue, I only should double click on the torrent file (the small one you downloaded from QZ). Then BT client starts and after a while it'll find peers and seeds and all goes on.

Try to do pause and start, or close client and then double click original torrent.


But now it's time to be gone - forever...

That's it fixed. I had overspent my "share ratio". (It was set to automatically stop after I uploaded 96%). I have now increased that to 500%.

This now means that (depanding on speed of uploads) I will be seeding for about the next 13 days.

So there is now at least ONE guaranteed 100% seed.
