I have never used a torrent in my entire life... No really, never even bothered me. Well I am downloading a file and it had 31 minutes left and it turned RED and lost the Tracker...

Although this is still downloading and my ratio has gone up to 1.053 and there is now 95% of the download left does this mean the torrent is still intact and the file will all be there...?

Bearing in mind I have never downloaded a torrent before so I do not have a clue.

Yeh, it just means your unlikely to connect to more seeders/peers. The file should still download fine from the computers your already connected to :)

A tracker just conections to a peer or a seeder for you to start to download. After that, the seeders and peers send you the piece you need to get 100%

Advance trackers can tell you how many times the torrent has been completed
