    the torrent is Rome 2xAll - Season 2 Complete (720p 5.1 .mkv)
    when uploaded to my seedbox it needs 21GB and my box only have a 7GB HDD

    i want to edit the torrent so it only downloads one episode at a time (2GB per episode)

    i tried working with BEncode Editor deleted the other episodes in files but it still requires 21GB

    i use torrentflux and tried seleting 1 episode only but when i run the torrent it ask for 21GB

    Do you mean when it's downloaded to your seedbox? Can you not uncheck whatever files you don't want (ie uncheck all but 1 episode) and download that way?

    Yeah i ran into this too. I think this is a problem with torrentflux itself and not your providers setup. I never did find a way to circumvent it.

    I think this will do the trick: put the *.torrent file in the client (uTorrent), but do not start the downloading! Then go to files tab and uncheck the files you don't want to download.

    He's not using utorrent though.

    I use torrentflux and don't have this problem.. it only downloads the files I select (it does download the folders though - so if a big pack, I get a bunch of empty folders).. and I BELIEVE.. it will still report the full size of the torrent even though you aren't downloading all of it (but might be wrong on that last point)
