Now, considering that the what is a torrent part of our discussion is over, lets move on further. There are some minimal requirements that you need to download a file of any kind for further use. These are namely
- A torrent client or a software that can recognize torrent links, and then can download them
- Some manageable space on your hard disk. This space must be ideally more than the size of the file that you are going to download.
- A link to download the file. that is the source from where the file will be downloaded on your own machine for a later use.
A torrent client or a software.
A torrent client or software is the software that will be primarily doing all the heavy work of downloading and saving the file. You just need it to provide with a source link for the torrent.
