What is BitComet?

BitComet is one of the most popular BitTorrent clients available for Windows. The software is packed with a lot of unique features including long-term seeding, cross Protocol downloading, and more.

Long-Term Seeding is a unique feature of BitComet which helps users to download files from peers who have 100% of the torrent contents. For some out-dated torrents, it's a common occurrence that there are no seeds and in that case, if the number of aggregate copies inside the swarm is lower than 1, then the task cannot be finished.
