Hi,
I'm currently downloading the Wiltern show. Usually I use utorrent for my downloads, but as it kept telling me that there's no space left on my HD I used Bittorrent and it worked fine, until at about 93% it too told me there was no space left. I just don't understand it because I have more than 50 GB free space on my HD.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have more than one drive and is the torrent programme saving a temp file of the torrent on a full drive, then once the torrent is finished places it where you really want it, i.e. the 50GB free drive ?

Hmmm...I do have two drives, but the other one also has about 30 GB free space.

Thank you anyway, it seems to be working now. I've converted one of my drives from FAT32 to NTFS - whatever that means, but it has solved the problem :D
