bt has a built in sharing award-based system. the more your 'share' the faster your d/ls will be. if you delete the sub directory thats created along w/the downloaded file, its no longer 'shared.' ..or you just might have some stuff nobody else wants.

how do you start sharing if you already deleted the sub directory?

as you download a file, additional data is written (sub dir.) and that file which you are downloading is being shared with others. when your dl is finished, you can leave the client open to keep sharing. if you want to share more files, basically u just run 'maketorrent' and select whatever you want. it will create the 'torrent' file which you then upload to a web server/torrent search page, so others can get the file(s) too.
