XCRC

The XCRC command uses a CRC (Cyclic Redundancy Check) algorithm to calculate the hash value of the file. This value can be used to verify the integrity of the file transfers. If the CRC value of the local and remote file match, both files are considered equal and therefore the transfer is successful.
If the server supports the XCRC command SmartFTP verifies the transfers. If the XCRC check fails, SmartFTP automatically renames the bad file and restarts the file transfer.

How To

  1. Select Favorites > Edit Favorites from the SmartFTP menu. The Favorites window appears.
  2. From the Favorites window select the Favorite of interest. Right click on the Favorite and select Properties. The Properties dialog appears.
  3. Under the Transfer option select Integrity. From the Integrity tab under Transfer Integrity you can enable the XCRC feature.
