    this means the hard drive is full, it is not a setting that can be changed in utorrent you need to manage the disk space on the server. Which version of Linux is installed on the server ? either way a simple command to check the disk space in Linux is in in a console session (PuTTY) type in the command df -h this will show the available free space on all volumes.

    well that was speshal of me, lol, most users of vectoral do not pay for the W2k3 upgrade, so I naturally assumed this was a Linux based server

    I used to get that too
    You need to set your total upload speed and download speed right
    Thats the only way I managed to get rid of it

    What speed is your HDD, 7.2k rpm? If it is. Basically the HDD cant keep up with speed your downloading at which creates the disk overload in utorrent "i think" Because i had the same problem. But this month i upgraded my server and got a SCSI 10K rpm HDD. I downloaded a movie pack the other about 26GB and got full speed 11.6MB/s all the way and uploading at 7MB/s. No disk overload. So i think thgis is the only solution but thats just my opinion.

    When I've got disk overloaded, my observation was that it was related to the fast download speed while the size of the pieces was small (less than 1MB). But I didn't think to look at the # of blocks inside 1 piece. HD's speed is way more than 100Mbps, so to have it overloaded, I suppose a lot of pieces and blocks are being written too fast.

    EDIT: After thinking, what makes the most sense to me is too many blocks are being written to the disk at a time, especially when the blocks are scattered, and the HD can't physically keep up. There's only 1 solution, which is to slow down your download speed, or live with the disk overloaded while that torrent is downloading.

    I get disk overload when I have a torrent downloading at a very fast rate and I am also burning a disc. I set the priority on Nero to very low and the disk overload goes away.
