Hi I downloaded Lazarus (or something like that) from the link on this pages (uTorrent).
After a few days I decided to uninstall cause it looked I was downloading so slow and I could not solve a port problem.
Could it be that my PC kept downloading despite I uninstalled the software?
I remember downloading only 250 MB in total and it seems I downloaded for a total of 4,5 GB.
How can it be?
thanks in advance for your kind answer.

As soon as you start downloading, it creates 'blank' files that equal the total size of the download.
So, it's taking up 4.5 GB, but it's unusable as only 250MB of it is real data.
Best delete it.

Thanks for your answer.
Yes like you said I could not use the files it but on the hard disk, I had 4,5 GB "busy", that I could not use.
