Ability to Fix Corrupt Files

I am speaking to functionality similar to the 'RemenDeKO'
or 'Remote File Fixer' programs found on sourceforge.
The idea is that you divide the file up into blocks and
use CRC to check the integrity of each block. Then,
only the corrupted blocks need to be re-transferred
instead of the entire file.

This would be particularly useful after downloading a
very large file or over a slower connection.

The problem with the programs mentioned above is that
they require user participation on both ends of the file
transfer. It would be much more convenient to have
this functionality built directly into an ftp server/client,
so that the task could be automated.

Using encryption protects you from corruption. Use that instead.
