web seeds wasting data

Recommended Posts


I ve noticed this behaviour in many torrents with web seeds where downloaded size(1.89 gb) is far more than tasksize(966 mb). And also there is no dropped data in the below example. Im using Bitcomet 1.68, but this issue existed in previous versions as well. This torrent has pretty much no seeds and only downloaded data from web seeds except for 6 MB.

eps downloaded - 8-13



There is also the issue of dropped data when d/lding from webseeds. Usually the large part of the dropped data is from the "first" file of the torrent. But I've also noticed some same pieces that keep dropping that are not from first file of the torrent. Please find below the sample torrent. First file size is 214 mb(1 mb per piece)731124205_Screenshot(61).thumb.png.4a555d5df840a25021e5cc359e9a8776.png



Any help would be appreciated. Please let me know if the torrent file/magnet link is needed

Update: FYI - even though consecutive pieces are dropped, I was not using  "Sequential Download" .
