Because torrents strive to screen out dummy and corrupt files, are mostly free of adware/spyware, and achieve amazing download speeds, torrent popularity is still growing fast. By straight gigabytes of bandwidth used, BitTorrent networking is the most popular activity on the Internet today.

As most of you would be already aware of the fact that now The Pirate Bay has stopped distribution of its .torrent files and has switched to 'Magnet links' most of you would be facing problem using the site now. Also they have removed the links to the .torrent files from their torrent description page, leaving the users to either switch to magnet links or to any other site.

Note: If The Pirate Bay is not blocked in your country, then continue with method 1, but if it has been blocked, then switch to method 2.

Method 1:

1. Get the link to your torrent's description page. In my case, it is: http://thepiratebay.se/torrent/xxxxxxx/ (Now: http://thepiratebay.sx/torrent/xxxxxxx/)
2. Check for the number series in the link. eg: xxxxxxxx in my case and ignore the names and other characters if they are in the link.
3. Type the following link : 'http://torrents.thepiratebay.sx/NUMBER/NAME.torrent' where NUMBER is the number series in the link and NAME is any name that you want to save your .torrent file with.
Eg: http://torrents.thepiratebay.sx/ xxxxxxx/Game.torrent
After you press enter, you'l get a download dialog box. Now just give the location to save your .torrent file and you're done!

Method 2:


1. Get the link to your torrent's description page. You can use my method of unblocking the site as mentioned here: Unblocking The Pirate Bay
In my case, the original link is: http://thepiratebay.se/torrent/xxxxxxx/ (Now: http://thepiratebay.sx/torrent/xxxxxxx/)
and the updated link will be: http://tpb.pirateparty.org.uk/torrent/xxxxxxx/
But it doesn't matter if you get the old link or the new one.
2. Check for the number series in the link. eg: 6879594 in my case and ignore the names and other characters if they are in the link.
3. Type the following link : 'http://torrentstpb.pirateparty.org.uk/NUMBER/NAME.torrent' where NUMBER is the number series in the link and NAME is any name that you want to save your .torrent file with.
Eg: http://torrentstpb.pirateparty.org.uk/xxxxxxx/Game.torrent
After you press enter, you'l get a download dialog box. Now just give the location to save your .torrent file and you're done!
So in just 3 steps you can download any .torrent file that you want to.

*New* Method 3:

If none of the two above methods work for you, then you should try this new method that lets you download .torrent files from The Pirate Bay.
1. Go to the description page of your torrent file.
2. Right click on the 'Get this torrent' magnet link and copy the magnet link to the torrent file you want to download.
3. Now go to http://magnet2torrent.me

Update: This site is now not so safe to visit as it asks to download java update from an unauthentic site which suggests the presence on malware and spywares. I would advice you to search for any other similar site. I won't remove the name of this site so that you get to know the concept of this method, but I highly recommend to use any other site.

Important Reminder About the Legality of Torrents

Torrent

In short: not all torrents are legal, and you could be reprimanded for downloading illegal content.

There are lots of illegal files floating around through torrents. It's important to remind yourself that just because the torrent downloads themselves are free, it does not mean that the torrent data you're downloading is free from copyright. Some countries have laws protecting copyright holders, so that should be considered before downloading torrents.

Not all torrents infringe on copyright laws; there are tons of free images, movies, music and documents that you can share with an unlimited number of people for free. However, it's also really easy to share and download other data too, which might be considered illegal.

Torrents 101: Understand How Bittorrent File Sharing Works

If you are new to torrent downloading, then you will definitely want to read about how the system works.

Torrents (.TORRENT files and magnet links) are pointer files that help torrent software locate the computers of other users who are sharing that specific file or group of files that you're wanting to download.

With the torrent file, you can then tell the software to connect to those private computers for copying their music, movies, documents etc, to your own computer.

Torrent Software: How to Use Torrents

Torrent downloading requires special software that can read the .TORRENT file or magnet link. These torrent software products also need to provide management control over download and upload speeds, priorities, and cataloging.

Torrent programs aren't just downloadable tools that work from your desktop. You can also download torrents through your web browser so that you can access the files anywhere and sometimes even stream media files without downloading them.

Torrent Download Sites: Where to Find Torrent Movies and Music

Once you understand torrent swarming and have the right torrent software or online service necessary for using the torrent data, it's time to find the right pointer files that will get you the files you're after.

Nearly all torrent sites are easy enough to use because you can search through their database pretty quickly or browse relevant categories, though some might be littered with advertisements. Other torrent sites are much cleaner private communities that closely guard their catalog of torrents.

Warning: How to Spot Fake Torrent Files

Sadly, there are vandals, thieves and scammers out there who use phony torrent files to put malware on your computer. By disguising their nasty software as attractive movies and music downloads, these scammers seek to deceive you into installing their stuff.

A few of the ways files masquerade as healthy torrents is through RAR, WAV and password protected files.

Another is by renaming a file from something seemingly harmless like videofile.mp4 to videofile.mp4.exe. Instead of an MP4 video, this particular file is an EXE file that can cause serious damage to your computer.
