I never knew exactly what to do with a downloaded torrent once the associated set of files had been transmitted. One day I made up my mind to fall back on LQ. Well... the thread got filled with many posts, and there were several opinions. Until a certain post completely illuminated the issue. The poster, in a most categorical --and, I dare say, brilliant way, stated four reasons why the torrent should be kept along with the set. ( I know categorical is not well seen as a word nowadays but some persons ought to be allowed the luxury of using it.)
Not only this. He mentioned the name of a program which could be used in the maintenance of torrent files. This little and efficient program is called CFV, made by intelligent people for intelligent people.
Currently I use CFV each time I download a torrent and stick to the policy so wisely delineated by Telengard, who happens to be the poster I was speaking about. If the story just told is not correct I apologize beforehand and my personal greetings to the above mentioned LQer.
