Re: 99.9% problem

From the FAQ:

I am seeding a show, but no one can complete past 99.9% Why?

One of the most common mistakes made by seeders is editing a text info after creating a .torrent file. To prevent this from happening, make sure that ALL files within your torrent, including the text files, look how you want them to before creating a .torrent file.

The other common mistake is people leaving a file in the torrent open in an application when they make the torrent. So, make sure all the files are closed out of any applications when you go to make your torrent.

If the mistake has already been made, then simply make a new torrent with all of the files as you would like them to be, upload it to the tracker through the upload page, and then hit the Report this Post link on the old torrent, , and tell the mods what happened so they can pull the old torrent. Users should then close the old torrent and open the new torrent and point it to the same folder, at which point all of what they currently downloaded will check and they only need to grab the remaining 0.1%.
Since you say you didn't change a file after making the torrent, I would guess you left the text file or another file 'open' when you made the torrent file.
