Well the Qnap forum is only users like you and me so apparently the Download Station users aren't as helpful as users of other Qnap Stations. If you contribute by answering questions in the forum in the future, it will become better.
I'll do my best here but it's been a long time since I used Download Station and if there are any recently introduced bugs, I'm not aware of them.
yes, there are leechers for the torrents I have downloaded.
And not too many seeders competing with you?
Also have you opened the necessary port in the router/firewall and have enough internet upload capacity to fulfill incoming requests?
The Share Time maximum is 2 weeks or 'Forever'. I assume that means it will be shared indefinitely.
2 weeks should mean two weeks and 'Forever' I would assume is indefinitely, so in reality the share ratio will be the limiting factor if there's enough demand for the file.
I tried to change the Share Ratio to a higher number. I assume that a higher percentage will increase the time the file gets seeded by Download Manager.
No. 100 % means that you seed the same amount of data as the file size so 999 % means that you will seed until you've shared 9.99 times as much data as the size of the file in question.
RAID have never ever been a replacement for backups. Without backups on a different system (preferably placed at another site), you will eventually lose data!
A non-RAID configuration (including RAID 0, which isn't really RAID) with a backup on a separate media protects your data far better than any RAID-volume without backup.
All data storage consists of both the primary storage and the backups. It's your money and your data, spend the storage budget wisely or pay with your data!
