What did you use to upload the files in the first place?

You can use the HttpWebRequest/HttpWebResponse classes, or the WebClient
class to perform downloads.

However, for the purpose of application updates, you should look at the
Updater application block in the enterprise application blocks at Microsoft.

If you are using .NET 2.0, you should look into ClickOnce as well,
because it would wrap up most of what you need.

Hope this helps.
