Re: Basic Downloading question for new guy

I have had no issues w viruses using bittorrent for many years. One can always scan the folder w malwarebytes.

The standard is to leave a seed available until you have uploaded at least the volume downloaded. That being said, achieving that level can be difficult if you are grabbing shows that are not new uploads-ones that have been around for awhile, also for ones that may be less popular. I often seed shows for a month or two after downloading. There is one show I am still seeding from May of 2013 because in my opinion it is rare.

Powering down your PC at night is not a big deal. It will start seeding again when it is powered up again.
