Default LimeWire Question.

When you download a song from Lime Wire does it take up space ? Lime Wire is one program and every time I download a song it seems like the program compacts it. Does it really act as a regular download ?

When you download songs from Limewire, it makes a backup of it also in the temp folder in case the download gets interrupted. Other than that, it's a reuglar download. Once it finishes, the file gets dumped into your download folder so yeah, it takes up additional space on your hard drive.

Torrents have clients too. Then you need to check for websites that support the torrent client you use so you can download it. I think that's how it works....

You do realise that it is illegal to download music like that.

i hate limewire
just because of the spam that it puts onto your pc
when you go to delete it
after you run the uninstall program (on the free version)
right click on the start button and go to explore
expand the program files and double check to make sure that the program and all of the files are actually gone
because on my pc files remained until i manually removed them
the uninstall worked to get the short cuts and the menu links removed
but it doesnt get everything
so do a search or hut for that waskawy wabbit manually
