    how could the percent be at 96%, the total received be at 771, and the total size be at 700? ive received more than the total size and it says 96%

    can someone please explain this?

    Not everything you download is useable. Your client checks this and discards bad or unnecessary data. I use Azureus and this shows me how much of the downloaded data has been discarded.

    Every download I have done has had more data downloaded than the filesize.

    I should stick with it and see if your download completes in %age terms.

    I am not familiar with your client but there may be a record somewhere within its options which gives you more info on this.

    I think it's quite normal although the amount discarded does look a bit high.

    One last thought - I seem to experience more discarded data as I approach the end of a download.

    hmm so why is it discarded?

    anyway, ive finished the download and teh file did turn out to be 700mb, and it works fine. ive watched through teh whole movie and its pretty good.

    (this is teh first thing i have ever downloaded with this program) (4th torrent download ever)

    Because it's no frelling use.

    Glad it worked and welcome to the wonderful (if slightly flaky) world of Bittorrents!
