Differences Between the CommonUpdater and CommonUpdater2 Sites?


Wondering if someone can explain the difference between the CommonUpdater and the CommonUpdater2 sites, and in which scenarios it would be best to choose one over other.  According to McAfee KnowledgeBase - FAQs for V2 DAT files  the CommonUpdater2 download site does not have a copy of the DAT files in its root folder, but I'm still unsure why this would make a difference to anyone.  FYI, right now we're using CommonUpdater2.

Thank you.
