Seeding problem. My torrent stopped at 99.8%

I uploaded a Marillion live in Montreal torrent earlier today. But my torrent is stuck at 99.8% and I can't figure out why.

I do know that just as I began to upload, I had left my Soundforge program open. When I closed it, I noticed it left a couple of files with the .SFK files extension, which were not there when I created the torrent.

I quickly deleted them as I was seeding. Could this be the source of the problem? And if so, how can I correct it?

Re: Seeding problem. My torrent stopped at 99.8%

Yeah, that is probably the problem. If there is any change made to any file in the torrent, then it will do the whole 99% thingie. Just stop your torrent, make sure all your files are closed and not being played or anything, then create a new torrent file and upload it like you did before. Then you can hit the Report this Post, , on the 99% one and the mods will pull it.

I had this issue and Lynne gave me this tip. Basically, When you create the torrent, nothing can be accessing that folder. That should clear this error up. Not a biggie just catches you off gaurd sometimes.....

Good luck and if your in trouble PM us..
