    Can the new version of azureus do separate file downloads? Example: downloading a torrent which has many large files but you only need one or two. The old azureus allowed you to pick which files you wanted to download and which you didn't. I can't seem to find this option on the new one. If it won't do this, are there any other torrent clients that can? Any help appreciated. You guys have always been good in the past.

    All versions of Azureus can do this. I haven't used the latest "Vuze" 3.x versions but behind their fancy new interface is still the same old Azureus... the way in which you select individual files should be no different.

    You may have a reason for needing Azureus, but I strongly recommend Transmission, which recently got the features of separate file selecting and prioritizing :)

    Azureus offers this by default; click the torrent file and uncheck the files you don't want.

    Is there a way to automatically stop seeding after it reaches a set share ratio?



    edit: I am speaking about Azureus

    Um, couldn't you just delete the torrent from your torrent client once you've seeded the amount you want to.
