"File Too Large" errors

by Guest on 2022/10/22 03:29:08 PM    
I download a torrent with multiple files (usually music/video collections, from which I only download one or two)

Then I download the single torrent with the single download of the one single file with a few smaller description files (one music/video file)

I use the single torrent to check integrity of the single file from a collection.

BUT often I get a "file too large error" (i think from the error checking of the magnet link???)

How do I correct this???

Do multi file torrents add extra bits to the individual files???

Too little information.
   What are you running? Windows? Linux? which version?
   What file system is your storage device?
For example, if the device that you have set as your download destination is formatted FAT32, you will not be able to store any file larger than 4.3Gb. If that is the issue, point your downloads to a device with a 64bit filesystem (NTFS on Windows, EXT4 on Linux).

I am running on NTFS systems whether thats Windows 10 Ent x64 or windows 10 x32 home, so I dont the filesystem is the problem.....since often i use the same laptop when the issue happens

Does the torrent client add extra bits to the files in a collection???

I think the clients add extra bits to the start and end of the proceeding large file as a error check???
