MORE INFORMATION ON TORRENTS
Using a torrent or bittorrent client means that you will be downloading the Mint ISO file from other users around the world who are also using a torrent client: it’s called a p2p, or peer-to-peer, connection. Once the download is complete, the torrent program will begin “seeding” the Mint ISO. In other words, it will make the Mint ISO file available to other torrent users, and can possibly use your Internet bandwidth to upload the Mind ISO file for other users.

To stop sharing the Mint ISO file after the download is complete, either uninstall Deluge, or (1) Go into the Deluge program, (2) Right-click on the Mint ISO file name in the main Deluge window, (3) Left-click “Remove torrent”, (4) Once the new window opens up, left-click “Remove torrent” again. Deluge will no longer take up your Internet bandwidth to share the ISO file. Good to go! 🙂
