Thread: Why is the file I am downloading bigger than it is supposed to be.

  1. #1
    Trying to figure out why the file I am downloading got bigger at the very end. Supposed to be 6.09 gb in size, but now it is at 6.10 gb downloaded and still downloading. Can anyone speak to this? Thanks!!

    You probably have some wasted download due to hash fails (the piece of the file was corrupted during transfer).

    So that means I still do not have the entire file?

    If it says 100%, then you have the entire file. However, what I was saying is that you may have to download more than the stated file size to get all of the pieces of the file.

    "The torrent is supposed to be 100MB. How come I downloaded 120MB?

    See the hash fails topic. If your client receives bad data it will have to redownload it, therefore the total downloaded may be larger than the torrent size. Make sure the "kick/ban" option is turned on to minimize the extra downloads."
