How do I send files to friends and family?

There are two easy ways to share files with others

1.  Send a torrent from your torrents list

You can send any of your torrents to others with this simple procedure:
 
  • Go to the Torrents tab in your client.
  • Select one or more torrents. (Select multiple torrents using CTRL or SHIFT.)
  • Click SEND in the toolbar. Or right-click on the selected torrent(s) and select Send Torrent.
  • Follow the on-screen instructions. At the end of the process, click Copy Link. Now, send this link to whomever you'd like via e-mail, chat, etc.

When people receive your link:
 
  • They simply enter it into a Web browser to receive client installation instructions and a download button.

* Note: To guarantee delivery of your content, your computer must be on and serving your content at the time somebody is downloading it.


2.  Send content from your computer

You can send any files on your computer - pictures, home video, your songs, documents - with this procedure:
 
  • Locate the file or folder you want to share.
  • Drag and drop the file or folder onto the client interface and then follow instructions. At the end of the process, click Copy Link. Now, send this link to whomever you’d like via e-mail, chat, etc.

When people receive your link:
 
  • They simply enter it into a Web browser to receive instructions and a download button. (And if they don't already have a client, the download button will include a client.)

* Note: Your computer and client must be on and serving your content at the time somebody is downloading it.
