A Dr. File Finder Favorite -- GetRight

GetRight, by Headlight Software Inc. is a tool that I've used for quite some time. And, if you download anything off the Internet, you should use it too! File sizes just keep getting bigger and bigger. And what do you do if you're downloading an 40 megabyte file and your power goes out? Or your computer freezes up? Or you get disconnected from the Internet? You start over, that's what! Well, not when you're using GetRight! With this in place you can resume downloads that have stopped. And they start back up right where you left off! Very slick and also very handy! The program also lets you "pause" a download ... so you can start it up again at a later time. Nicely done, but there's lots more!

GetRight can also be used to schedule downloads for a later time. So, say you're wandering around the Internet and spy a file you want. Put it in your schedule and move on. And schedule as many downloads as you want. Later, at a time you determine, GetRight can dial the Internet, download the files you've selected, and then log off!! How cool is that? VERY! Heck, if you want, it can ever turn your computer off! Another neat feature of the program is that it can divide a large file into sections and divide different sections from different servers. That may sound odd but it can really increase the speed that files download at as compared to downloading the entire file from one server. GetRight can also keep track of passwords for you, let you browse FTP sites easily, and it integrates beautifully with Netscape, Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Opera. And that's perfect!

GetRight, by Headlight Software, Inc., is a powerful tool for managing downloads on the Internet. The program is loaded with features, but it's also very easy-to-use. GetRight is the kind of program that's ideal no matter what your level of experience. It lets you resume downloads that have stopped -- whatever the reason. It lets you schedule downloads, pause them, and even divide a download between multiple servers. It integrates with the most popular browsers and it's one of those programs I wouldn't be without. I use it daily and have it load when Windows starts. Often I'm downloading 5 files at a time. For all the reasons I've listed and more, this is not only a Pick, it's a Dr. File Finder Favorite and those are few and far between. So, if you download files, take at look at GetRight. I give it my highest recommendation!
