Well in this post we are going to tell you that how you can start BitTorrent downloads at your home from any other computer with Dropbox. Now before moving to how it is done with Dropbox you shoud have an idea of what Dropbox is, so Dropbox is a great software that allows you to store, share, synchronise files online.


For starting BitTorrent downloads remotely this Dropbox software must be present on your home & work computer. Dropbox installation creates “My Dropbox” folder in the “Documents” folder for Windows Vista, in “My Documents” for WinXP and in “Home” for OS X.


When you download and save the torrent file in your My Dropbox folder, Dropbox will synchronise the content of “My Dropbox” with your home computer. Now open your BitTorrent client and go to Options>>Preferences>>Directories and then check “Automatically load torrents from” as shown in the image above. Once a “.torrent” file arrives in “My Dropbox”, BitTorrent will start downloading automatically.
