Many people prefer smaller, specialized private torrent trackers than larger sites with bits of everything (aka General/0Day trackers). Specialized trackers usually have rare, unique content that is not found elsewhere. This article features five such sites with some of the rarest torrent collections in the BitTorrent scene; The Box (TV), The Occult (Cult/Mythology), The Vault (Business/E-Learning), The Place (Lifestyle) and ElbitZ (E-Learning). Note that all of these sites have previously been mentioned in FILEnetworks Blog. However, we thought another mention of these sites will be worthy since we constantly get new visitors ( and it’s not everyday you see these open up to the public).If you still haven’t managed to get into these content rich trackers, here is yet another chance.

Out of the five sites featured in this article (all except ElbitZ), four are sister sites run by the same group of people. Also note that some of these trackers offer free invites on their IRC channels - If open signups are closed by the time you read this, you can always try your luck on IRC.

With the shut down of Docs.Torrents.Ro, ElbitZ’s usefulness has only increased. It’s more like an E-learning tracker that everyone can access. ElbitZ has monthly open signups and boasts a pretty good collection and educational and non-educational electronic books. In addition to the books there is multimedia content such as video tutorials, test engines and so on. A lot of books related to lifestyle and various other subjects can also be found.
