    hey i have been using bit torrent for ages now however i always encounter one problem.

    once i have downloaded a file, i prefer to clean up the file name and remove the _ - etc from the file name.

    after doing this i get an error saying the file has been altered and renders the file seedless.

    how can you change the name of the file but continue seeding?

    thanks

    i think there is no way. maybe you can copy it , then rename.
    but i am n00b , maybe i am wrong ...

    either make a copy of the file and rename the copy
    or stop renaming files that do not need to be renamed.

    well...renaming the file it's the same with deleting it...so don't rename it unless u plan to stop seeding it

    make a par2 file before you rename the files. when you want to seed use it to change the names back to the original names.
