Bit torrent files rely on users to seed, or share, fragments of files associated with the torrents. Peer users can also seed files as they download them. Without a healthy number of peers and seeds, bit torrents become unreliable, or virtually invalid. If you use Frostwire as your bit torrent client and would like to do your part in keeping it healthy, there are a number of options you can adjust in Frostwire to increase your seeds and peers.
