Hello, My computer started freezing while downloading large files in uTorrent, About 10 minutes after starting uTorrent the PC starts to be really really slow and 1 minute after it freezes, only restarted/shutdown solve the problem, I've been using uTorrent for years and never had this problem, I mean it happens when I download a 15GB movie, but two months ago I downloaded a 170GB TV series and no problems were with that.

So I thought maybe its a problem in the HDD (not in the space, I have aprox. 150GB free in C and 220GB in D), I don't really know what to do, hope that you will help me

Thank you.

OK, then you do have a uTorrent issue and that issue may be directly related to the way a uTorrent download is executed, a specifc uTorrent download, and/or the uTorrent client you are using.

Hope this information has provided some clarity to your issue. Good luck.

From Utorrent Menu. Click on Options->Setup Guide. On the next screen, click on Run Test to see if the port used by Utorrent is opened & forwarded properly.

Seems like a 9GB file was fine, but when tried a 15GB file it froze again, I looked in my task manager before it froze and I saw that the "System" took all the Disk space and the Disk space was on 99% so it was overloaded.

Sounds like you are going to have to free up some disk space in the very near future. Good luck.

I have 238GB of free space in D, I didn't had this problem when I had 70GB free in D

EDIT : Is there any diagnostic tool for HDD?

I thought you were referring to the actual disk spec remaining when you said:

Disk space was on 99%
I'm not sure that what you read actually meant what you said. It possibly meant the disk was spending 99% of the time reading and writing and that would be normal for a large direct download.
