Hi all,
I'd like your opinion on how to best archive torrents.

As far as I understand, once downloaded they must not be altered if I want to keep seeding them or have them handy for reseed requests. But at least speaking for myself, I tend to rename folders and files so that they don't contain spaces, convert shn to flac, add/edit metadata.

This all comes down to the need that I find myself duplicating the data and keeping notes that show the cross-reference. I'm aware that disk space gets cheaper and cheaper and that it's more a case of keeping things organized.

How do you guys handle that? Are there any tools out there that make things easier?
