Can u rename a torrent file you just downloaded?

Here's a scenario, i just downloaded a torrent for a music video under a name(Let just say it's call ("Linkin Park Music Video collections"). The files name is too long so i rename the file as "LP VC". My question is will the renamed torrent still be able to download the file(eg. the video) i wanted?

Yes, you will still be able to download the file, because isn't the torrents name that matters, the .torrent contains only metadata, the file you want to download will still the same.

Kinda similar question and I may as well ask it. Can you rename a file after you've torrented it and still seed it?

No you can't since the file would then be different to the one that the torrent program would be expecting.

Like Demon said its a no, the torrent program expects the file to have a certain name if you change it the torrent will just redownload it again under the name it should have because it will think you've deleted or moved it ( in other words the torrent will think that the file hasn't been made yet because the programming says it needs a certain name and thus you'll be starting all over again)

There is a way, sort of. Download the file to a different folder on the same drive, and then make a hardlink to it where you want it with a different name. It'll appear in both folders at once, but it'll only be written on the disk once, and you have to delete both places to delete the file.

At the command line, hardlinks can be made using the "fsutil hardlink create" command on 2000 and XP, and Vista and 7 can make hardlinks with the mklink command (which also can make symbolic links and junctions.) Install Link Shell Extension to make hardlinks in Explorer: http://schinagl.priv.at/nt/hardlinks...kshellext.html
