Thread: too much wasted data/hash-fails

  1. #1

    Default too much wasted data/hash-fails

    Recently I have observed that if I download part of a singer/band's discography or just a single song on a public torrent tracker site like katph or tpb it just wastes too much data with heavy number of hash-fails. At one point around 80 MB data was downloaded for a part of torrent file with actual size being 40 MB. But this is very few for a recent tv series download like the simpsons or castle etc.

    I use utorrent 3.1.2.What can I do about it?

    thanks for your reply. Bhai anekdin dhorei torrent namai but that particular thing is significantly bigger. I used utorrent filter but it is when I had to download 80 Mb for a 40 MB data then I unloaded that app. If you have some recent working ipfilter app please let me see it. I have no idea which one is good.

    If you Stop your torrent a lot then there will be higher wastage. Pause the torrent instead.

    Other than that, things are probably out of your control.

    Not sure if this is relevant to your thread...but if you're on Windows there's a utility called PeerGuardian that can be used to block IP's based on their type...whether it's coming from government spies, advertising companies, etc. You might want to check that out: http://sourceforge.net/projects/peerguardian/...and if you live in US using such a thing is mandatory cos torrentz are illegal depending on what you're downloading & you don't wanna get your ¤¤¤ sued.

    @coldfire7 , that is exactly what I have done when it started to occur frequently, and with enough suspicion I ended up deleting that.
    @aayman , I pause torrents frequently and rarely stop them, but thanks for your advice, I am now warned.
    @irenicus09 , I agreed with you, peep over there reluctant to using torrents and prefer file-sharing sites and/or newsbin, and thanks for suggestion. Will definitely try that.
