I know i should have read all there is about torrent before i started but it seemed so cool to try but now that i have dove in,It seems like i dove off a high dive and lost my swim suit when i hit the water lol..my question is.Is my pc accessable meaning can anyone get into my harddrive and download stuff because i notice files being uploaded at all times the same files that i've downloaded which i don't mind becuz it's what this is all about as long as thats as far as it goes.This is probably a dumb question and like i said i should've read it all which i will after i finish here,Just looking for a quick answer.. :tinfoilhat: LoL

you should have also read the forum rules. please do so now ;)

ps, for a quick answer: yes you should have done a little reading - try this to start with, and yes, that's how BT works. also, please post BT questions in the BT forum, not in "tell us what you think" ;)

A bit less quick and less surly: Yes you are automatically sharing files back, but no it is not your whole hard drive or anything like that (it SHOULDNT BE!!) Just parts of the files you downloaded or are downloading.
