I am a new SmartFTP user and would like some guidance on automating a daily process which I have to carry out.
I transfer files to and from a remote server and my C: drive.
The first part of the process is as follows:
1. Look on the remote server for a new folder. (The new folders are updated on a daily basis, and the folder is named with the date - eg. of format: 20130521. I transfer the files inside the folder into a specific folder in the C:, but not the whole folder)
I have seen the tutorials of how to run SmartFTP as a service. I have also seen tutorials of how to time and schedule transfers, but I don't want to have to do that, I want it to pick it up by itself. The files that are transferred from the remote server are generated on the server during the night, therefore I want to schedule it to find the new files at about 07:00 and then start the process.
I appreciate any help you can provide - thank you!
