I am new to downloading bit torrents and am also new to using Linux Ubuntu, so I'm not sure if the challenge is OS based or not. I am using Transmission Bit Torrent and am downloading from PirateBay and my download has just stopped. I don't need the whole thing, just two files that are important. Is there any way to restart or force the download to complete?

hey, im using Vista but on bittorrent you usually stop the download and then do a manual hash check, usually by right clicking the task, and once the check has completed then start then download again, it will start from where it left off and locate those files for you, it usually works for me.
