Resuming an Interrupted Upload

Some interrupted uploads can be resumed, provided that the necessary server support and permissions are available.  During an upload, servedat will create temporary files to keep track of the transaction.  See the Upload Status section of the server documentation for more information about using these files to track the status of partial uploads.

If you move or rename the "-sv.tmp or "-sv.met" files you will lose the ability to resume the upload.

You can resume an upload by repeating the Send of a file with the same name into the same remote directory.  MTPexpedat will then ask you if you wish to resume, start over, or cancel.  If you choose to overwrite the existing data and start over, the previously saved data will be immediately erased.

If you have the compression option checked, then your options will be to resume without compression, start over with compression, or skip the file.  Resuming a send with compression is not currently supported.

Resuming an upload should only be done if you are confident that neither the source file nor the partial destination file have been changed since the previous upload attempt.  ExpeDat will attempt to detect changes, but can be fooled.  Resuming an upload after a file has changed may result in corrupted data.

Automated Resume

When sending a directory hierarchy in one-at-a-time mode, interrupted sends will be automatically resumed if possible or started over if necessary.

Non-Resumable Uploads

Streaming Folders and Object Handlers cannot be resumed and must be restarted from the beginning after an interruption.  Compressed uploads can only be resumed with compression disabled.
