I am using Smart FTP to moniter and transfer files from a FTP server to our account sever to process orders received. In order to prevent any loss of data I would like to make a backup copy on the local system before I start the file transfer. Can this be done?

Where is SmartFTP running? On the server with the orders? And then you are uploading the files to an FTP server?

Are you copying or moving the files? If you copy the files, why would you need an additional copy? If you move the files, why dont you copy the files?
