The client can concurrently download file parts from multiple sources for a single file. Multi-source download can speed up synchronization times where the latest version of a file is available from multiple sources.
Enabling or disabling multi-source downloads
It is possible to control the use of multi-source downloads separately for LAN and WAN connections.
Multi-source downloads are turned on by default for LAN and WAN. To enable/disable the feature:
- Click on Preferences in the main window.
- Click on Expert Settings.
- Configure the checkboxes next to Multi-source download as preferred.
