  1. Something is corrupting the files but it's not BC itself (if it was, we would have been flooded with posts about that for a long time now) It's being caused bu something external to the app itserlf . I would suggest as a trial, epending on what you are downloading, set your A/V scan to ignore the BitComet folder. It's possible that's the culprit
  2. It just seems that way Casssie LOL (being around when you had to manually route through nodes to get to the BBS you needed to post on)
  3. That is more an issue with your iSP than with Bit Comet. While BC itself may cut out, it simply can't affect every other computer in the house. It's possible your ISP is causing that to happen - does it happen with a VPN (or conversely, if you have one, running without it)? Also check that you are using static IP on the intranet (local network) with a pre-allocated port in the high figures
  4. You will have to close it in the long run. Wait until the download has finished and go google for 'Revo Uninstaller' (use the demo version in moderate mode) - then do a clean installation
  5. In BC, right click on the torrent and in 'properties' change the destination
  6. As you arten't running a beta version (in fact no-one is running a beta), this topic was moved. As for your problem - you may find that you have a port issue - that the only open port is the one that is set to the VPN. It could be your ISP blocxking certain ports - in which case the 'cure' is to try something well out of the normal range, coupled with a fixed Intranet IP
  7. if you're referring to 'snapshots' it's possible that either the original seeds simply didn't include them or they are incompatable with your graphics. Does this happen with all downloads or just some? The sign you see is showing that they are blocked on your computer
  8. You would need to restart the .torrent files manually (and if you have a lot, that will take some time). However, as far as Bit Comet is concerned, these would be 'new' seeds and the ratio will be back to zero
  9. You would need to know what ports are open on the router and also have one opened for your intranet IP address (the VPN isn't an issue here) Basically, there is no way you can operate without actually changing the settings on the hotel router - and I don't think they would permit that And, please do not attach a 'me too' post especially when the original problem is totally different (and was 3 years ago)
  10. 3 years isn't 'late to party' - it's necroposting. Your problem is nothing to do with the original - if you have an issue you should always start a new thread. However, you have identified the probably culprit in the VPN and that is, unfortunately, way beyond the control of anyone here
  11. check that your router is set to tcp/udp ports that match the computer (it's best to use a fixed IP number for this)
  12. Try a clean install (use the demo version of Revo uninstaller) after saving the Bitcomet files in appdata) and make surew that the windows firewall isn't blocking the app
  13. Can you use the 'square' icon at the top right?
  14. It's similar to defragmenting a hard drive - 'gaps' in memory are cleared by moving it down
  15. It simply frees up any excess memory by compacting. 'Expert' mode is really only for debugging
  16. Where is that option? I can't recall seeing it anywhere in the settings or even the online help pages
  17. OK - here's an example: I'm downloading a file in sequential mode and also uploading at the same time. Peer 'X' has an upload in an early part of the file and is also downloading other parts but I want that segment (it may be part of a multi-file download), so I ban X temporaily so that another peer can transfer that particular part and, where I might set the ban for 5 minutes, it couold be set by someone else for a longer period
  18. What may be happening is that there are no trackers for that file, You could try manually adding a tracker list (from one of the several websites that have those) and see if that picks up the needed data
  19. It's necessary so that the app doesn't try downloading a file that it bigger than the amount of free space on the drive
  20. For some reason the seeder has banned your IP address and only they would know the reason why
  21. It's like the fad years ago for 'go faster' stripes on cars - it doesn't make a scrap of difference to performance
  22. URLs are web addresses and aren't applicable in this instance
  23. They also miss the fact that some info overlaps fragments so a large file may be uinusable due to a small missing segment which was actually carried in part of a .nfo file
