How big is it? I had similar issues downloading danbooru2020 (3.4TB), but rtorrent did the job with only ~5G RSS. Every other client used 4x the memory and never completed the download.

Another commenter mentions that the actual .torrent file is 32MB.

it's 180 GB. transmission works fine.

it's not the size of the data that's the problem, it's the size of the metadata and the sheer number of files in the data. Torrents suck for lots of tiny files, and we have that here in spades.
