Question Folder Already Size of Torrent - Still Downloading?

I am using uTorrent. I originally began downloading an audio torrent from here with another client until downloading stopped at around 40 % (it went into 'connecting to peers' mode so I stopped and exited that client). I fired up uTorrent as I just learned that it is the preferred client on this site and added the orignal torrent to resume the download. To my joy the torrent came to life showing dl/ul activity, however the per cent done started at zero. I let this go on and am now at almost 30% done. I checked on the size of the folder where the data is downloading to and it is showing the size of the complete torrent. I am confused as to what is going on.

Re: Folder Already Size of Torrent - Still Downloading?

When you start a torrent, many clients will allow you to allocate the space on your harddrive at the beginning. My guess would be that this is what uTorrent did for you. If you are ever in doubt, you can always run the md5 against the files and I would guess they would fail at this point.
