I know this is about a P2P program, but not about piracy.....If you want to delete it it is perfectly fine, please don't ban me though....

I have a few tasks running in Bitlord, (totals up to around 100 GB :-S ), and I only have like 1GB left on my 8GB hard drive....

BUT I have an external hard drive that is 500 GB, and I have all of the downloads set to download to that....Well after about 15 minutes, my loacal hard drive has 24 KB free, and the only thing that is downloading is the Bitlord....(I also checked for viruses with Kaspersky, and check processes to make sure no new ones were running), and what was happening was that Bitlord is downloading to the local hard drive before it goes to the external....but my external shows up as a "local" in 'My Computer', so why would Bitlord need to download to local drive before the external?

Please help...thanks

Don't know anything all that much about torrents, but whether it's an eight or eighty gig hard drive, having only one gig left is asking for problems

There is a way to disable hard disk cache, so I thought that would be it, but when I read the description, it sounded like something different...should I try to disable it, and then report back....

Yer, disable the cache and see if that does anything.
Have you tried the Bitlord help/forums?

so...I think I figured it out...I had the Bitlord program files located on my local drive, and the way bitlord is set up, it downloads the files as a temporary file in the bitlord folder, to make sure you aren't leaching (that way it will still automatically seed while you are downloading...So to fix this I just transfered all of the bitlord system files onto the external, so it can use as big of temp files it wants ; D...

Oh, and haha btw...I WOULD have checked the bitlord forums is there WERE any...they were breaking the rules of an off site forum hosting site, which banned them, and they still have no idea...haha
