Going Pro or ad-free helps streamline your BitTorrent Windows client experience, which can speed up your efficiency. However, it isn’t the only way to turn your client into fast torrenting software. Below are a few tips to help any user speed up BitTorrent downloads:
Limit use of other bandwidth consuming applications
Look out for other apps, both online and on the desktop, that consume your network resources. Web applications like Facebook, YouTube and Gmail, as well as desktop apps such as Skype, Dropbox, and Pandora can slow your downloads. Closing or limiting the use of these apps before you open your torrent client can increase torrent speed.
Schedule downloads during off peak hours
BitTorrent Classic includes a scheduler that limits your downloads to whatever time of day you specify. If you live in a household where web activity and bandwidth consumption is heavy during the day and in the evenings, you can schedule your downloads to run late at night or early in the morning. This can speed up BitTorrent during off peak hours and keep your normal internet tasks more productive during the day.
Select only the necessary files to download
A single torrent file can be bundled with several individual files (e.g. a Moby music album available on BitTorrent Now). If you don’t want to download all of the files in a torrent, you can easily stop them to speed up other prioritized files. To do this in BitTorrent Classic Pro, click into the Files tab, then right click on the file(s) you want to stop and click ‘Don’t Download’. This will optimize your torrent download speed for the files important to you.
Limit online streaming
To optimize your BitTorrent download speed, limit your use of video streaming sites like YouTube and Facebook, which can make your connection slower and your torrent downloads take longer.
