>From my observations, bittorrent creates all necessary folders and
creates the files too, maybe via touch, so that even without
downloading any of the files, you get the skeleton of whatever has
been torrented on your computer. If bittorrent is not working for you
(I believe is should work somewhat well ou-of-the-box) check your
firewall/router NAT. To achieve good speeds you need to forward a
range of TCP ports (6881-6889 by default; bittorrent doesn't use UDP).
Perhaps nobody is seeding the torrent anymore. If you can find the
torrent on, that site can tell you how many seeders
and leachers there are, although its interface doesn't look incredibly
