So I accidentally deleted ONE small file from my torrent folder and now it won't seed or burn completely. Is there a way to re-download just that small percentage of information from the original torrent or do I have to re-download all 7.67 GB again?? Any help would be greatly appreciated, I'd really like to seed this show but now it looks like I just leeched and ran when I can't even view the file myself :(

yes

just start the torrent, point it to the same folder as last time and you will get the missing file pretty quick.

I've tried restarting the torrent a few times, and I've also tried deleting the file that was incomplete and re-starting the torrent but both times it says 100% complete in my bittorrent client window and it won't let me just drop and drag. Do you have any suggestions??
Thank you very much for your help, I appreciate it!!

delete the file that was incomplete

remove the torrent from your client

re-download the torrent from the webpage and point it to the same old folder

that should work

Cool. I finally got this to work late last night by deleting the incomplete file.
Thank you again for your help!

The ABC client program is kind of odd and wouldn't just let me re-start the torrent, so I just had to get another client to resolve the issue!
