For a long time, I’ve been using a lesser known, more exotic Torrent client called “BitTornado” (link).
And I love it - it’s light, flexible, powerful and absolutely robust.
However, on the last torrent I completed, I was leeched off mercilessly. By that I mean I spent the final 2 full days, uploading at my ADSL connections maximum of 30-35KB/s while getting an average of 2 or 3, when I was lucky.
In fact it was watching the BitTornado Advanced stats that got my blood boiling, these confirmed that my poor download speed was caused by leechers absolutely bleeding me dry.
After this I felt the need to get tough with leeching scum so today I started using the Azeurus derivitave client BitTyrant (link) which works by prioritising the clients that are sharing with you.
To make a long story short, in the normal course, I prefer BitTornado because I have historically had excellent experiences with it.
So my question is, is the torrent data download compatible between BT and Azeurus? Like say, If I started a download with BitTornado, but found I was being leeched off and getting awful down speeds, could I then open the torrent with BitTyrant and have it pick up where BitTornado left off?
