    Force Start means the torrent will stay active despite any rules you might have set. Many bittorrent clients will have queue and seeding options that will stop the torrents at the conditions you set. Force Start ignores those.

    Start will keep the torrent active within those rules. So if you set your option to stop seeding at 150%, then it will stop when you reach that % (and Force Start would not)
