What are Torrent Files?

BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer file sharing protocol used to distribute large amounts of data. The initial distributor of the complete file or collection acts as the first seed. Each peer who downloads the data also uploads them to other peers.

It also provides redundancy against system problems and reduces dependence on the original distributor. wikipedia.
