BitTorrent allows users to share files they have on their computers by making them available as torrents. Torrent filesTorrent files are hosted on users computers hold the entire original file and are referred to as seeds. Seeds are then split up into a smaller files that can be shared to other users through a BitTorrent Client. A BitTorrent client requests the file seed and is sent one of the seed files at a time until all pieces of the seed are dowloaded. When a seed is being downloaded, or uploaded, the pieces of the seed are often coming from several different computers through peer-to-peer communication swarms.
