Re: Does Downloading one song hurt your ratio?

The tracker only 'charges' you for the information that your bittorrent client says you downloaded. If you really think you are getting charged for the whole thing, then try a different client and see if it still does that. Actually, you can look at the stats for the show and see what the tracker says you have downloaded and uploaded - that is the information that it gets from you.

(But, if you download 25mb and only seed back 25mb, then your ratio will go down. To keep your current ratio, you need to seed back 1.98x25mb or almost 50mb.)
