Monitor a folder

Post by hardipe » Thu Nov 20, 2008 5:08 pm

When adding a folder to the Monitor, make it intelligent so that i recognizes the file that actually changed and instead of uploading the whole monitored folder, make it upload only the file that was changed. This would also require the recognition of added files / deleted files [in the folder].

This would greatly simplify the Monitoring work for me. Since TrQ' saving to an .xml is either buggy or i tend to overwrite my previous project's TrQ very often(even when using Save and Save as carefully). I am also forced to open each folder separately and then select all files and manually add them to the TrQ

It would greatly ehance my coding speed.

there's no use reporting it when i dont have the way to reproduce it.

however, the intelligent monitoring of a folder is still a requested feature by me.

Hello ..

Please check the latest version:
https://www.smartftp.com/download

The intelligent folder option is now on by default (and cannot be disabled). Please give a try and leave some feedback :-)

Limitations: One-Way Synchronization with Delete is currently not implemented. Is that something you need?

Thanks
Mat

i downloaded the latest Beta: 3.0.1026.27

i put a folder into Monitoring state but when i changed one file in the folder, they all started to upload. this is what it should not do when Intelligent Folder Monitoring is working.

Could you please explain, where it can be configured or read about further - how it works exactly.

The intelligent monitor works only after the item was processed at least once.

I tried it with a folder. Set it Monitoring, changed a file in the folder, the whole bunch uploaded(creating the folder in the remote location too, because it did not exist yet). changed the file again, then the worker tried to create the folder again - which gave an error (twice) and then the worker stopped - it did not upload the new, changed file.

the strange thing is that once i change a file in the folder, the whole folder uploads again AND another file which is not related to the tested folder also uploads itself (I was testing with an existing TrQ with some other files in it).
