    Question Mark

    Donno if the same question was asked before but couldn't find through searching ... maybe you'll call it differently. Anyway ... the scenario is, if I get a file from somewhere, and happenly the same torrent is found in 2 private trackers. Is it doable to seed same file to 2 sites at the same time? Thanks.

    ya it is as long as they are tracked seperately by your torrent client ...

    same question (basicly)... to do this I have been copying all the files/folder to another spot on my HD. then redownload the torrent from the second site to the newly copied location... it checks the integrity and then starts the upload....

    now

    can I just take the announce url with my passkey in it and add it to the torrent #1 tracker urls (thru advanced settings) so I dont have to take up 2x as much space on my HD? will there be any problems with either of the trackers as long as the files are the same?

    You dont have to copy the content to another folder just point it to the same folder
    when you start the torrent

    My concern was that some trackers may have restriction rules on this ... but seems it's allowed from your guys answer. Another way to boost ratio while saving hdd space. Thanks a lot!

    do NOT do this !!! this is why i specifically said "tracked seperately" ...

    if you add the tracker to another torrent that is already running you are likely to get banned for cheating ... cause the client will be reporting bad stats to the tracker...

    they must be tracked seperately ! as two different entries in your software

    yah. I didnt think about the tracker stats. I noticed I couldnt control the bandwidth seperately so I did it the way you suggested with the help of Ryan and Funkins suggestion too..

    Thanks for clarifying that Raban!!

    +1 you need to different hash chech for every tracker and every file
    dont put 2 tracker or over in one torrent file just add the other torrent(which you will "re-seed") at your client and it will hash chech and when it complete 2 diffferent torrent file but same file will seeding ...
