|I'm fairly sure your data is still on the primary drive even though it's been "wiped clean". Even if the drive was reformatted, the old data can usually be recovered until it's overwritten by new data.|
"Torrents" refers to a file sharing protocol used on the internet. You would need to install a "BitTorrent Client" such as uTorrent on your computer to be able to download/upload files. You can find just about any software program, operating system, music CD, movie, etc. thru the torrents. Some people consider it "pirating", so you'd have to let your conscience be your guide.
