    i realized a way to keep torrents alive with Dropbox acting as a web seed, this is very useful if you plan to stop seeding or you have a poor connection.

    Using DropBox as a torrent seed and not a direct download will help reduce bandwidth so this is a better alternative if you don't want your account flagged for excessive bandwidth use.

    after reading up on it a little, it seems that some people have been using this method for quite some time.

    First you will need:
    Get Started

    1. Take the file you want to share and put it in the "public" folder of Dropbox. You may want to create a system of folder organization if you plan on making many different files available, just to help maintain your sanity. You will see the Dropbox icon in your system tray have a little blue cycle icon indicating that a sync is in progress. [​IMG]

    2. When the Dropbox icon becomes a green check-mark again, your webseed is ready. You can right click your file and select Dropbox -> Copy Public Link to get the URL.

    3. Open up uTorrent and create a new torrent. Select your file. Add any public tracker (For instance: Paste the webseed URL from step 2 into the Web Seed box. Do not check Private torrent. Click Create and save as... and wait as uTorrent makes your .torrent file.

    4. Done! Give your .torrent file to a friend or post it to a website for millions to see and you can safely shut down your computer to go to work (or whatever), it doesn't matter. Dropbox will seed your file for you, as long as there are no other seeds available. As soon as there are however, those seeders will prevent your Dropbox from being overwhelmed.

    Make your Torrent Noob Friendly

    now to make the torrent noob friendly so that anyone with no experience with torrents can download it in seconds.

    i like to use Torent2exe to put the .torrent file in a simple downloader that acts like a stand alone torrent client.

    after the torrent is done downloading, it will start seeding for as long as the client stays open.
