How to Restore Torrent Files
The Recycle Bin has a symbol on it like this one. (Recycle image by sarkee from Fotolia.com)

If you accidentally delete a file with the .torrent extension while you're downloading a Torrent, it's often a simple matter to correct the situation. The .torrent file is simply your link to the file you're downloading. For example, if you are using a Torrent to download a movie but delete the .torrent file, that doesn't mean the movie itself is deleted; it only means that the movie may not be complete yet.
