    hey,

    I'm currently downloading a big file (30 GB) using transmission and just got leopard. I've been downloading this file for about a week know and about two thirds done :). However, I really want to upgrade to leopard and was wondering if I could upgrade without messing up my torrent.


    Thanks for the help!

    If you copy the .torrent file, and the file(s) you are downloading, it should not mess up the download. However, I would not risk it. But then again I'm a patient person :).


    Off topic, kinda: Leopard DOES seem to mess up my torrents >.< Transmission doesn't want to download some of my torrent files. But then again, it could be a dead tracker or broken torrent files (weird...).

    ya, I'm probably just going to wait, its painful to watch it go from like 15Kb/s to like 0.8Kb/s. :mad::mad::mad:

    Btw- for you torrent users out there, what are using as a P2P IP blocker? I think it's been discussed earlier, but PeerGuardian2 seems to crash in Leopard. Any ideas?

    Yeah, I'm using the latest version. Anyways, It appears it's more of a problem with the website/trackers, rather than Leopard/Transmission itself. All other torrent files appear to be working perfectly. (I <3 Transmission ^_^).

    Thanks :).

    I didn't have any torrents downloading at the time I upgraded, but the seeded torrents I had in Transmission were still there. But if I was downloading a file THAT big I would go ahead and try and hold out.

    As in they claim its totally Leopard compatible, while many apps don't...
