replacing files w/o registering result in truncation

It is so tempting to just replace snapshots of the CSVs. BUT the system truncates the download resulting in an epic fail.

the time cost is high (hence the shortcut attempt), it takes about 1 min per file, may be some overhead. we have about 300 files. it is about six hours of wall time, almost a full day completely dedicated.

RELOAD the CSVs, mets.
