  1. AfterTransfer command - blat not executed

    Commands section in my .ini is set in this way:

    [Commands]
    AfterTransfer=blat "%LOGFILE%" -to destination@xxxx.com -cc destination@xxxx.com -subject "Results - %STATUS%" -server smtp.xxxx.net -f sender@xxxx.com

    However, blat command is not executed correctly.
    Where do I am wrong?

    I’m sorry but I can’t replicate the issue.

    I’ve downloaded latest version of blat, added it to PATH and added this to .ini files:

    [Commands]
    AfterTransfer=blat “LOGFILE” -to support@cyberkiko.com -subject “FTPSync STATUS” -server localhost -f support@cyberkiko.com

    and I’m getting email without a problem (including a production server that generates quite large logs). If PATH wasn’t set, the only change needed was to use full path for blat, e.g.:

    [Commands]
    AfterTransfer=C:\path-to-blat\blat “LOGFILE” -to support@cyberkiko.com -subject “FTPSync STATUS” -server localhost -f support@cyberkiko.com

    What Windows version do you use?

    [Update: it seems percentage sign is lost with UserVoice, but it must be before and after LOGFILE and STATUS words, of course!]

    Best regards

  3. Difference between /DIFFERENTIAL and /INCREMENTAL.

    Hi all, I don't understand the difference between the options /DIFFERENTIAL and /INCREMENTAL. I tried out both and can't see any differences.
    Can anyone explain me the difference, because the handbook says only that /DIFFERENTIAL parameter instructs FTPSync to transfer "all files changed" since last full or incremental transfer. The /INCREMENTAL parameter instructs FTPSync to transfer only files changed since last transfer. May be an example would help me. Thank you!

    Terminology used is the same as with most backup software:
    http://typesofbackup.com/incremental-vs-differential-vs-full-backup/

    In general, you should use /INCREMENTAL (the default) for most cases (e.g. web site updates, etc.).

    The only case when /DIFFERENTIAL is needed is when you use FTPSync to make backups, and want to be able to restore those backups to a certain point in time, not just latest.

    I’ll plan for a blog post on this topic.

  4. Macros

    have macros for the directory the FTPSync is installed into so you can change the log file location to a folder inside with out having to know or use the full path

  7. Better granularity for deletes

    It's common with web applications to have some directories that files get uploaded to on the FTP server, but those files do not exist in the source control. So we need the ability to delete orphan files, while being able to exclude specific directories on the destination.

  8. Statistics data in the log file or in additional file.

    For the some task very usefully to now
    1. how many files was transferred successfully ex: (100 files; total size 1212 MB)
    1.1 --------------- was skipped (10 Files);
    2. Errors: 100 WARNINGS; 5 ERRORS; 1 - FATAL;
    This data more useful to send via email, then logfile.

  11. Mail if files send

    I read that you can email after file transfer. I want to only send an email when there are actually files send. Any ideas how to do this ? I read it can't be done by getting the status. Maybe by looking into the destination folder and see if there is a file with today's date, or something like that ? Anyone creative in how to achieve this ?

  12. Compare source and destination files

    If you could compare source and destination files and overwrite if source file is newer, or a different size would be great. At the moment, even if a destination file is deleted, the FTP sync does not copy the file to the destination.

  14. Content hashing

    It would be great if content can be hashed and files would only be transferred if content has changed (thus reducing transfer of files whose timestamp change, but content remains the same).

  15. Support for two-way sync

    Make FTPSync support two-way sync - e.g. transfers from destination to source, if destination has changed.

  16. /CHANGED switch

    It would be great to have a switch that would instruct FTPSync to only return an errorlevel if anything has changed/transfer is required, but not transfer anything.

  17. Empty directories should be transferred to destination

    Empty directories are currently not transferred to destination. They have to, because some frameworks rely on their directory structure, even if directories are empty.

  18. File name manipulations

    It would be nice if some file name manipulation can be performed before file is transferred to destination; e.g. append prefix or suffix, substitute unsupported characters, etc.
