    1)Bandwidth allocation/High-Normal-Low

    2)Force Re-check

    the only other one i know is the bandwith allocation one, but basically if u set that to high u wont be able to surf the internet or do anything else but use utorrent, so i suggest leaving on normal ;)

    Force Re-Check can only be used (as I recall) on torrents that are stopped either by choice (you manually stopped the download/upload) or there is some kind of error. What it does is re-check the directory the torrent was set to download in for the correct files. There are a few good uses for this. Occasionally I'll find that I somehow removed a torrent from the download list prematurely (although my pride wants me to say they just disappear), but the semi-downloaded data is still there. If I were to either open the torrent by finding it on my HDD or redownload it, I would direct it to download to the directory the partial data is located in. Usually this will automatically cause a re-check, however sometimes it tries to start all over again, in which case you stop it immediately and Force Re-Check. Also, sometime's you'll get a torrent where it says it's finished, but is corrupted when you try to access it. This is a rarity, but sometimes that happens because the torrent didn't download completely, and doing a Re-Check will find the missing bits and complete it.

    Clear Peer list CAN speed up your download, and it can sometimes mess it up. It will disconnect you from any peers you're downloading from bits from and you will remain connected only to seeds. The only time you should consider clearing your peer list is if your upload is drastically higher than your download because there are too many connections, and you should NEVER do this if you are a member of a ratio-based torrent site.

    EDIT: I can't believe I just signed up for this for a damn post made almost 14 years ago! And BTW if anyone comes across this in the next 14 years, I also would like to know what reset bans does, because utorrent doesn't really have much of a comprehensive user manual.
