Updated Upload File Doesn't Change!

I have had this problem for a long time and I bet many other users have this problem too.
Here is what happens:
I Upload a file.
Then I update the file on my computer and try to upload it again
The sitebuilder asks if I would like to replace the file.
I click Yes.
Then I republish the site.
Here is the Problem:
Most of the time(not every time), it takes like 10 publishes until the publisher realizes that the file has been changed. Then the file changes. Before that, the file doesn't get updated.
This problem has been annoying me for a around 2 years.
Right now what I do to update a file is to upload it, unpublish the site, then publish it again.
Though this process is actually faster and more efficient(well, currently) than the process described above, it still takes up a lot of time.
I would be really glad if you could get rid of this bug.

Hi I never had this problem. I don't know why it isn't updating. It is most likely a bug. Lets wait and see if an employee or someone as an answer or a solution.
