i started this torrent download on BitComet around 3 weeks back and it finished last night...i'm not really worried about that, but what i'm worried about is i ended up downloading more than 3 GB extra...i really don't have any idea why so as the "rubbish data" is also not too much...though one thing i'd like to mention is that to download the files of the torrents one by one, i was changing priority (Very High/High/Normal/Banned) time to time...and once i noticed that around 6 files of the torrent which were downloaded quite a bit earlier started from 0%...so can anyone tell me where have i lost those downloaded GBs??? :blink:

Its a peer world out there pal. Nothing is accountable in there. As it said: 2. The data do not match the request, and are discarded This means that this data, although it may be perfectly good, was not the actual data requested by your client. The other peer sent the wrong data, your client does not know what to do with it, and so discards it. This is not tragic. It just means that the request will be made again until the data matching that request are received. 3. The data are corrupt, or incomplete, fail the hash check, and are discarded This means that the data sent on this occasion arrived in an unusable condition, and so were discarded. This is also not tragic. It just means that somewhere on the journey between the peer who sent the data and your client, something damaged the data. So your client will request that data again until it is received. Its a big posibility that something of the above two happened to you too.

Ur client is not differentiating between rubbish and proper data. Its counting rubbish data as part of the downloaded file. Try updating to the latest BC version or use utorrent.
