Seeding after name change


I prefer to store and rename my files in a different manner in which they are downloaded from torrents. I change file and folder names. Does doing this break the integrity of the torrent I would like to seed/share?

I would still like to seed/share them to give back to the community, but I am particular about how my files are named and organized. How can I accomplish both?


  • Hello.

    You can change the name of the files and seed the torrent again.

  • but if you do this, you will be the only seed as the torrent hash will change.

    So you will most likely have to re-publish your newly renamed torrent in one of the major torrent indexes for anybody to find it and seed along with you.
