Last week The Pirate Bay took the drastic decision to remove all (well seeded) .torrent files and go magnet only.

As a result, millions of BitTorrent users are now downloading through magnet files, and some noticed a problem with uTorrent.

Unlike with .torrent files, uTorrent didn’t check for existing files if a previously downloaded file was re-added.

This meant that a file had to be downloaded again, making it impossible to reseed.

TorrentFreak contacted the uTorrent developers and luckily they were quick to release a fix.

The latest uTorrent release can be found here.

Of course we would like to know if there are any other magnet related problems, issues or opinions.

Feel free to discuss below.

you have to copy the link address, open the torrent by double-clicking the magnet link, paste the address & click ok. is there a simpler way?

To get a real .torrent file from a PB torrent page, I copy the Hash value on the torrent page, paste it into torrentz.eu site's search string field, press enter, then visit one of the other sites listed to grab a real .torrent file.

PITA this magnet-only thing... :)
