    Does anyone know how to trottle the torrent client " Bit torrent" for OSX. I have a torrent comingg down but it's killing my band wibth. Went to the preferences and realised there isn't an option to trottle the uploads noe the downloads. So does anyone one else use that client? can you help me?

    No, you can get it to start from where the other app left off. See here for details. Just follow the instructions at the bottom of that page.

    I use Transmission for torrents, I've found it's the best client around for OS X. It's simple, fast and finds peers faster. It is also very easy to throttle uploads, downloads, and seeding ratios. The only drawback is that you can't download certain torrents from members-only sites, but I can use Tomato Torrent instead.

    It's nice in some respects, but it doesn't allow you to download only specific files from within a torrent, an invaluable feature of Azureus. Anyway, there are lots of threads on the topic of which is the best bittorrent app.
