Is it possible to merge two of the same uncompleted torrent files.? eg. I download a torrent that has 2 pieces but i only download the first piece and my friend downloads the second piece. Is it possible to merge these two files so that I have a completed torrent.

You can do it by mergetorrent utility. –  Alexey Markov Apr 3 at 10:38

I am not sure if your question is just theoretical or a real problem... going to answer as theoretical...

As long as the full file completed, technically yes - I am not entirely sure of the best program to actually accomplish this.

A better solution may be to download the .torrent file and modify it to a private tracker between you and your friend so you complete off of each other.

The question is theretical and when i meant friend it can be anyone. The file did not complete. Sorry for the misunderstandings –  user83241 May 27 '11 at 11:53

Most BitTorrent clients have the ability to re-check downloaded files. If you combine completed parts of a torrent, and then run a re-check, the client should recognise the aggregate content (and begin seeding it).
