How to resume a broken download

Have you ever been downloading a file from SendThisFile, only to have to start your download all over again?

Internet connections can be finicky sometimes, especially on older browsers and computers. Depending on what hardware and software configuration the file downloader is using, a file download can be interrupted. Even screen savers and aggressive power save modes can potentially derail a file download. When the user realizes that their download has stopped, they find that they have lost their progress and must start the download all over.

Fortunately, resuming interrupted file downloads has been made available for SendThisFile personal file transfers.

Our latest system update gives user’s file recipient the ability to resume an interrupted file download right from where they left off! When very large files are being shared, this can be a big relief, saving time and frustration.

We continually roll out new features and improvements to our users. If you have an idea for us that you would like to see, please let us know.

Update: New Features for Slow Internet Connections

We are pleased to announce the release of two new features for customers using personal file sending with slow Internet connections; download accelerator compatibility and resuming interrupted downloads.

Download Accelerator Compatibility

Download accelerator software can help users download files by splitting a file download into multiple segments and then downloading these segments simultaneously. Our latest system update has made our service compatible with download acceleration software. So now those of you who rely on download accelerators will be able to get the files you need.

Resuming Interrupted Downloads

A very popular request, resuming interrupted file downloads, is also now available. Previously, downloads that were interrupted due to a poor internet connection or aggressive power save modes and screensavers could not be resumed, forcing users to re-download a file from the beginning. With our latest system update, users no longer have to start the interrupted download over and may resume the file download right where they left off! This can be a big time saver.

We are happy to announce that these features are free and available today for all personal file sending customers. Please let us know in the comments how you like these changes.

System Update: Improved 256-bit AES Storage Encryption

256-bit AESWe have updated our Enhanced and Classic mode file sending methods with 256-bit AES encryption.

The AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) is used to securely encrypt your uploaded files while they are temporarily hosted on our file server. Previously, we were using the already strong 128-bit encryption method.

To give you an idea of just how secure this is, it is over 2,000 times more secure than using 128-bit AES. To break it, a brute force attack would take 50 supercomputers over 3,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 years!

Breaking a symmetric 256-bit key by brute force requires 2128 times more computational power than a 128-bit key. A device that could check a billion billion (1018) AES keys per second (if such a device could ever be made – as of 2012, supercomputers have computing capacities of 20 Peta-FLOPS, see Titan. So 50 supercomputers would be required to process (1018) operations per second) would in theory require about 3 X 10^51 years to exhaust the 256-bit key space.  [Wikipedia]

Relentlessly improving security is part of our company culture and are a hallmark of our service. It is what allows SendThisFile to continually meet today’s most stringent regulations and standards, such as HIPAA, SAS70 Type II, SSAE 16, PCI DSS, and FIPS 140-2.

The update is free and available now to all paid SendThisFile customers.
