Part 1. What Is A Torrent

A torrent is a file that contains metadata (a set of data that provides information for other data). It does not contain the file itself, but it helps torrent software search for computers that are sharing the file. Once it is located, the software will connect to computers to copy documents, movies, videos, music, photos, ebooks, applications, games, podcast episodes, etc. A torrent file helps users search for needed information and the address of computer that have uploaded the content.

The file sharing happens on a peer-to-peer (P2P) network with computer called "peers". This process is called "seeding". Therefore, the more seeders there are, the faster the download will be. When there are numerous sources contain the same file, a client can download small portions of it at the same time.
