Post by reggio »

Hi folks, I'd love to know if it's possible to transfer files from a local PC to remote FTP server when
- file change
- new files coming in my PC folder

Every time i'll change or edit my files in my PC folder, i whant to copy that files (overwrite) in FTP server folder
Every time i'll create new files in my PC folder, i whant to copy that files in FTP server folder

Is it possible? Could you explane to me how to reach my target?

Just create an incremental task with a FTP as the destination.

Hi Luis, thanks for you quik reply - sorry my bad english

I've got already setting FTP as destination, and Ok, i should move from COMPLETE to INCREMETAL BKup, but my query was about "WHEN" when Reflector have to update my BKup copying my PC files on the FTP server ..

NOT every week
NOT every day
...
... so when? EVERY time i change/edit my PC's files

It's possible with REFLECTOR? How?

Thanks :)

You can set your task as you want, daily/weekly, etc. Only the files that have been modified will be backed up.

No. There is no detection in this version. Only scheduled tasks.

I once wrote a VB app to notice when a file changed in a folder and then fore off some external DOS program. I'm guessing you could do a similar thing if you wanted. It's pretty easy because as I recall, the trigger on any change feature is a part of Windows

You can write scripts using tools like Windows Batch (.bat) files or third-party scripting languages to monitor file changes and trigger uploads. Wordle Unlimited
