Unless you're killing it by pressing cancel, HTT does not redownload existing
files unless they have changed.
Dynamic content always downloaded.
All other content it simply asks the server has it changed? This results in
about 3 files per second on dial-up.
I update a 30GB mirror with 41000 files in 5 hours. Thats 11 files/sec
1.7MB/sec my pipe is only 0.0080MB
