How to Make a Torrent File

BitTorrent clients such as uTorrent, BitComet and Azureus use torrent files in order to help people share data. This may include movies, music or even software, depending upon the need of the user. The official BitTorrent website sums up the basic need of using their clients. It states that BitTorrent helps the users distribute different files among themselves by utilizing a portion of the total file from a single user.

The .torrent files allow you to share data among different people and with the help of these files you can share your information with other users who also have BitTorrent clients.

    In order to search for the file and add it to the client, you’ll have to press “add a file”. In case you want to share more than one file, you will have to press “add a directory”.

    You need to know the difference between these two, because you will not be able to select more than one file if you select “add a file”, and you will not be able to select a single file if you press “add a directory”.
