If your client allows it, check out the structure of the torrent itself
to see if there are any "gotchas" I might be unaware of. For instance,
I do this

aria2c -S *.torrent

and get a report that starts with...

>>> Printing the contents of file 'HPR-Speex-2007-Nov2013.torrent'...

and it goes on.

I want to know if there is any changes needed to the structure of the
torrent itself.

TIA!
