If you're cursed with a flakey connection and have problems downloading large
files GetRight is for you.
Most people have already experienced the problem...you are downloading a file,
and your modem gets disconnected, or call waiting interrupts, or your computer
crashes, or any number of other problems. Then you have to restart the download
from the very beginning, losing all the time you had already spent.
GetRight solves this problem by allowing you to resume a download. If you got
part of the file before the problem, GetRight will restart the download in the
middle so it only gets the rest of the file, without having to restart from the
beginning. This makes downloading your files much easier and faster.
GetRight has many other more advanced features to help you download the
files--from re-dialing the modem automatically to turning off the computer when
it is done getting the files (so you can just leave it alone to do the work!)
You can even set a time when it should dial the modem to get the files...so it
can do all the work in the middle of the night while you sleep.
There are too many other features to list here, worth checking out.
