What is GetRight Pro's exclusive feature Smart Replace?
In a nutshell, your files will always just be available, even when you're in the middle of uploading a new file to an existing name!
Like us, you surely have some very important files, where you always want to have them available no matter what. For example, uploading getright_pro_setup.exe. I never want to have a problem with users like you downloading that file. Installers can be 5, 10 or even over 100 MB...that takes time to upload, even on a fast connection.
What about those people who happen to start the download while you're in the process of uploading? What if your connection is broken in the middle of the upload? You never want your users to download a corrupted or partial file!
GetRight Pro features Smart Replace to help. GetRight Pro will upload the file to a temporary name, then when the file is completely uploaded, it does some quick renaming so the old file is swapped with the new upload. The swapping means the file is replaced in second or less! It even keeps the old version around--many servers will continue to send it out for those people who had it partially finished getting the old when the new file was swapped!
Your users will never know the difference when downloading. You will never know the difference when uploading. Your files will always just be available, even when you're in the middle of uploading!
