Re: How can I reduce the amount of temporary space qBittorrent uses?

I don't think it keeps any large temporary files, what it does have are the unwanted files which have to be kept because generally files don't meet on part boundaries. This may vary slightly between platforms, but in unix they are stored in hidden directories. As sparse files they don't take up much...

Re: prioritize download speed?

AFAIK the priorities for files just affect the order in which pieces are fetched within a torrent. They have no effect in prioritizing one torrent over another.

Bogus Seeds Reported

I have a torrent that shows "Seeds Peers" as "3(8) 15(16)", but the list of connected peers shows that all 18 are at 0.0%. I think it's unlikely that there are any seeds at all. My VPN doesn't allows incoming connections, which means that those 18 are well connected, and they've all been at 0.0% for...
