FDM already can create sparse files for BitTorrent downloads, but this feature effectively disables the option "Reserve space for entire file", since OS now allocates the storage dynamically (and I doubt that Windows can unsparse a file by its own utilities). I suggest to either disable sparse file creation when storage reserving is enabled or provide it as an additional option (possibly enabled by default).
