uTorrent, Vista, and seeding.

Just one question: my mom sometimes uses my Vista computer because hers is slow. So every day I sign out of my admin account and leave for school. If I did the "switch users" thing, which leaves you logged in, would the torrents continue seeding? I don't think that leaving it off for 6 hours a day helps my ratio any, especially since I have to re-establish it after losing all my torrents (PC switch)

Another question: Suppose you have the video_ts files of a torrented DVD but no text files. Could I seed that, assuming it's already got a torrent? Would the text files just be re-downloaded?

Re: uTorrent, Vista, and seeding.

I can't speak for PCs, but I know on my Mac if I switch users, I can leave applications running, like Azureus/Vuze, and it will continue running just fine. You can always check your profile tab > Torrent Stats and see your Current Activity on the tracker. You are currently listed to be in seed mode for two shows, however, neither of them have leechers, so you won't be actually seeding at all.

If you have an incomplete torrent (like missing the text file), if you point your .torrent file to the show, it will 'check' it and see you are missing the text file and download just that and then should go into seed mode.
