    What I&#039ve found is...<BR><BR>The benefits [of a commercial Upload component like SoftArtisans FileUp] include handling more uploads with fewer system resources, adding functionality and features (which you may or may not need), and giving you somebody to point & complain at when something really bad [tm] happens during an upload.<BR><BR>Using somebody&#039s demo "here&#039s a component which can take an upload" component which doesn&#039t vary much from how you&#039d handle an upload in straight ASP saves some system resources.<BR><BR>So, if you&#039re doing business-sorts of work, outsourcing file uploads can be a good thing. If you&#039re doing it for a personal site or educational purposes, you might as well get experience building an upload structure yourself.
