What is the .TORCHDOWNLOAD file type?

The verbose .tochdownload filename extension is exclusively used by the Torch Internet browser to identify its incomplete download files. Torch is a free web-browser application, stemming from the Google Chromium open-source project and incorporating the WebKit browser engine. Torch includes a torrent client and a streamed-multimedia grabbing tool, making it a just-enough browser for casual media-oriented surfing.

The .torchdownload is a temporary extension that simply serves to indicate a file's current state. Torch appends the .torchdownload extension to the original filename of any file, currently being downloaded with that browser. Once the download is complete, the .torchdownload extension is removed by the Torch browser, restoring the original type of the downloaded file.

Presence of .tochdownload files in your "Downloads" directory means that there are still unfinished download jobs initiated with the Torch browser. TORCHDOWNLOAD files, while still having that extension, are useless because they are not complete, and their integrity is broken. Most incomplete download jobs can be either restarted, or continued.
