Other list of torrents in the same style as the dump list

This is an unofficial listing of Wikimedia data dump torrents, dumps of Wikimedia site content distributed using BitTorrent, the most popular peer-to-peer file sharing protocol. This includes both dumps already being distributed at and dumps created and distributed solely by others.

BitTorrent is not officially used to distribute Wikimedia dumps; this article lists user-created torrents. Please protect your computer and verify the checksum at for any file downloaded from these unofficial mirrors (eg. for the last enwiki dumps).


  • : Each wiki's dumps are listed newest to oldest.
  • : Dumps web seeded from the Wikimedia Foundation web server at These torrents should match the original dump exactly and have at least one high-speed seed for BitTorrent client. Clients that do not support web seeds will still be able to download from other peers (if any). To speed up downloading, on BitTorrent clients that support adding additional web seeds manually, any of the mirrors can be added (make sure to use the URL of the same file that is being downloaded).
  • : Magnet download. Useful when the .torrent file is no longer available. These require metadata from other peers to start the download. Therefore you should always include a .torrent file too.
  • : No longer seeded by anyone.
  • Most-recent Wikimedia-seeded torrents are listed in bold, but they are not necessarily the latest dumps available.
  • These are seeded by more than a dozen peers.


Torrent of Wikimedia Commons files torrents (over 23 TB in total as of early 2013).

  • uTorrent does not save the web seeds list after you close it, so you will need to add them again if you have not finished the download.
