Monitoring and auto upload changed files


2006-03-16 17:00:34

When the transfer Que is not started yet I can right-click a filename in the que and choose 'Schedule' where I check 'Monitor local file'. This works fine with a small .htm file, each time the date/time stamps changes, the files gets uploaded automatically.
But when I do this with a 2MB .mdb file, it skips the uploads after a date/time change of the.mdb file.
Could it be that SmartFTP looks to quick to do the upload while the file is still being locked in the upgrade procedure and is locked somehow, so the upload can't be done? In the log file it says 'skipping: reason user action'.

I found the answer here:

Date/time was changed allright but when the filesize is still the same you can choose here to 'overwrite'.
