    Automated FTP Software needed

    Dan Ayo
      I'm looking for software that will automatically download files from my remote ftp site to my local hard drive. I have numerous ftp folders on our remote that must be d/l to corresponding folders on the hard drive.

      Can I get DW to do this?

      Is there software for sale that will do this? I'd be happy to purchase the right software.

      This is the goal:
      Our customers place files daily in their ftp folders on our site.
      We take those files from the ftp folders and store them on our local drives.
      We need to check these folders hourly throughout the day, so the process must be automated.
      Ideally, once the files are downloaded they can be automatically deleted from the remote folder.

      I appreciate any help with this matter.

          I'm not positive if This does that.. Here is the feature that might do that...

          "Synchronize directories on local and remote access computers (for comparing modified or new files)."

            CuteFTP will do scheduled transfers:

            www.cuteftp.com

            Looks like the Home version will do it. I've got Pro; it also does
            this

            Synchronize Folders - Quickly compare folder contents or perform
            robust mirroring operations, including bi-directional mirroring.

            Folder Monitoring - Monitor a folder for changes and automatically
            upload new or modified files to the remote server.

            Site Backup (archival) - Back up your entire FTP server or a selected
            folder on a recurring basis and then automatically archive it.

              Thanks for the replies. I found a great peice of software called WebSynchronizer. With only a few exceptions, the free program works exceptionally well.

                another good program thats out there is called Automate 6( i think thats the
                latest)

                Not sure about the price..

                But it has alot of automation scripts built into it.. very handy...

                http://www.networkautomation.com/automate/

                Im sure that the latest version is better then whay i used years back.. but
                back then it was pretty good also..
