What do the terms 'hashfails' and 'wasted' mean?

Hashfails means bad data has been received by your torrent client.  This data is discarded (wasted) because your torrent client didn’t want or need it.  Your torrent client is set up to automatically verify all downloaded data to ensure that only correct data is written to disk.
