I was lucky enough to be invited onto Torrentleech recently and I am trying to improve my ratio, I have read in the FAQ's a good way of doing this is to just d load the "preview" part of the torrent and then seed it. How do I d load "just" the preview part answers simple pls as I am a complete newb in this area an strugglin to get me head round it. Many thanks in advance.

When I download a torrent, a window opens on my torrent client (BitLord) and it shows me the contents of the torrent. There might be a .txt file with instructions, there might be a couple of .bmp files for covers if it's a cd, etc. and I can uncheck the files that I don't want to download. I guess it depends on what client you are using.

I have been a member of torrentleech about 4 years now and regarding your ratio just download something of use and seed it to death and build your ratio that way .
Or donate to build your ratio ,if you have got your invite of someone else and you mess up that person will be banned for inviting you beware .
I still have 4 invites but you have to be careful or bingo your out .

Ok I'm using ABC [yet another bittorrent client], I can view the files that make up the torrent but I cant see any way of selection/deselection. Maybe I should try Bitlord too.

Just go to the torrent website and click on the link again. A new window will pop up asking you to open it with a specific program, select BitLord and it will open up.
