No you still have temp and cache files to deal with all of those would have to be wiped. It is stored on a temp file on the computer itself depending on the setup and transfers the temp file to the external in chunks unless something changed I'm unaware of.

thats why you guys need to use private torrents .... they are using public torrents to get all kind of people ... but the private they cannot control ... well, if they join the private website, maybe they could get the IP address form the leechers and seeders but hey ... that will happen when they stop all public content ... it will take some time

And the letter said something about Sony Pictures Entertainment [SPE] contacting them because i supposedly was distributing non authorized content of "Terminator Salvation" by using a peer to peer service.
Once again, using BitTorrent in and of itself is not in the least bit illegal. Of course, neither is using a VCR to tape a television show. However, a huge number of people use BitTorrent to share materials that are copyrighted. The array is vast, from MP3s to first-run movies, and even entire seasons of TV shows zipped up into a single large file. And once again (say it with us), downloading copyrighted material without the permission of the copyright holder is illegal. You could get sued. For a lot. The odds may be against it... but it could happen.
