I'm adding all of the operating systems I've tried's torrents to a folder in Google Drive so I can download/install them anywhere/anytime without the bulk of the .iso file.

I looked on the website and only saw the magnet link and the .iso file but I would really like an up-to-date torrent file.

  • Copy the magnet link and paste that link in the form on http://magnet2torrent.me/. If the magnet is still active that web page will get the .torrent file and allow you to download it. – user10202 Jul 26 '17 at 1:36
  • @GypsySpellweaver That's perfect! Thank you! I have the website bookmarked so I can do it with other stuff too! – Amolith Jul 26 '17 at 1:41

You can always generate a torrent file from the magnet link in case you need it. Just do the following:

  1. Open the magnet link using your torrent client

  2. Wait until metadata has been downloaded from peers (your torrent will now then start downloading the actual files, you can pause the download on this stage)

  3. This varies from the torrent client you're using. Find the menubar item or right-click context menu that says something like "Save torrent file As..." and select it.

  4. You will now be presented to save the .torrent file on your desired location

AFAIK there's also some programs or web apps that does this for you automatically. In case you don't trust such third-party services and you want maximum compatibility with your torrent client, I suggest doing the steps above instead.

As GypsySpellweaver said in their comment above,

Copy the magnet link and paste that link in the form on http://magnet2torrent.me/. If the magnet is still active that web page will get the .torrent file and allow you to download it.

I did so and the file is here. I am not yet seeding it because I don't have a computer that can stay on 24/7. I'm trying to get my mother let me put Puppy Linux on her old PC (that she never uses). That should happen within the next week and, once it's available, I'll remove this part of the answer and say that it's available. If you want to be notified when it's available, leave a comment and I'll ping you.

Thank you, @GypsySpellweaver!
