Q03: What is a tracker?

A: A "tracker" is an online server whose role is to coordinate what Ultra Torrent Downloader Free clients do. When you open a torrent, you practically contact the tracker and are given a list of peers to connect to. During the download process, your computer will query the tracker, telling it how much you've downloaded and uploaded and how much before finishing. The transfer is totally dependent on the tracker - when the latter is down, the former will be impossible (because you won't be able to connect).

A: When you are downloading a file with Ultra Torrent Downloader Free, it allocates space for that particular file before the download actually starts.

Q07: What is a leecher?

A: We call leecher a client/user using the BitTorrent network that has only a part of a particular file. Practically, when someone starts to download something, they are a leecher up the moment they have completed the download and now have the whole archive (which would make them a seeder). Although 'leecher' has come to mean a person that downloads without uploading (only takes without giving), its meaning in this context is a bit changed - any "leecher" is integrated in the network as a part of it and is also uploading (sometimes even more than they download).

Q08: Will I have fast downloads if I have a fast computer and fast Internet connection?

A: It depends. Although you may have a very fast computer and Internet connection, you have to consider that when you are downloading files from other people they too may be mirroring what you are doing. If you have multiple files downloading, well, so could they; if you have some other applications besides the file sharing client running, well, so could they and so on. All these facts cut back on your download speed however great it may be. Besides those, there is the issue of congestion of the internet traffic, firewalls (which somewhat hinder downloads) all of them factors which affect your download regardless of your connection.

Q09: Is there any spyware or adware on Ultra Torrent Downloader Free?

A: While Ultra Torrent Downloader Free does not contain any sort of malware, files available for download sometimes do so be careful. Many sites that provide links to torrents also provide a comment section where downloaders can post their comments. Try to download files that have been already downloaded by other users before you and check out their comments - usually any fake/bogus file is immediately reported as such in this section.

Q10: How to seed a torrent?

A: In order to seed a Torrent you need to make sure the files you want to seed are in the right folder, if they are and you've got peers connected to the torrent it will automatically start seeding if your settings are set by default. Please make sure your Torrent client is active for seeding, once you switch it off the connection will be lost, if other users have not completed the download everyone will be waiting for you to reconnect, you should consider this when posting new Torrents as it's up to you to seed until others have finished.
