Hallo Payas,

die Programmierer und das Team freuen sich Smiley

Leider müssen die überwachten Server erreichbar sein.
Was Du aber tun könntest ist, die Aufgabe automatisch über die Windows Aufgabenplanung in Intervallen (alle x Minuten) immer wieder zu starten, bis der Server erreichbar ist.
Eine Anleitung dazu findest Du hier für unser anderes Programm WatchDirectory. Ersetze einfach ‚watchdirectory‘ durch ‚watchftp‘ und ‚wdrun.exe‘ durch ‚wfrun.exe‘:

Hallo Zusammen
Ich betreibe das WatchFTP bereits einige Jahre (Vers. 3...) und bin begeistert von den Funktionen. Habe gerade durch den Austausch eines Rechners das Programm Version 4.1.0 nochmals voll gekauft (der Programmierer soll ja auch belohnt werden  ;)

Zu meinem Problem oder Frage: Ich führe das Programm auf einem Client manuell aus und starte dann die Aufgaben auch manuell, um eine visuelle Überwachung zu haben (ca. 16 FTP Aufgaben). Mein Problem ist, dass die FTP Geräte teilweise ein paar Tage offline sein können. Diese Aufgaben werden dann leider nach dem ersten Ausführen, wieder auf beendet gesetzt (Rot).

Gibt es eine Möglichkeit, dass die Aufgabe nicht beendet wird, auch wenn der Server nicht von Anfang an erreichbar ist? Möchte die Aufgaben nicht als Dienste einrichten.

Gruss Payas

Thank you so much Gert.  You instructions worked well and I was able to move the files to the Archive folder using the rename option.

You seem to misunderstand.

The rename is applied for each detected file. So if you filter the downloads so it will only detect/download *abc* and *def* files, and your task detects and downloads helloabc.txt and worlddef.txt, they will be renamed/moved to

/voice/archive/{dt-yyyy}{dt-mm}{dt-dd}_{filename}

which, for helloabc.txt will resolve to

/voice/archive/20180914_helloabc.txt

the {tags} are described here (for another part of the program but it should work the same):

Hello Gert,

Thank you for your quick response.

Can wild cards be used for the file names/multiple files?
For examples:  *abc*;*def*;
/voice/archive/{dt-yyyy}{dt-mm}{dt-dd}_{ *abc*;*def*;}

(where abc and def are constants in the file names and other characters/numbers appear both before and after these constants).

Hello Marc,

Currently this is undocumented but you can use "Rename the FTP file after download" on the "Synchronization" window for that. No need for a batch script.

This option is typically (and documented to be) used to add a suffix to the downloaded file but you can also use it to move the file. In your case you should enter
/voice/archive/{filename}
inside the "suffix" edit box.

or, for example
/voice/archive/{dt-yyyy}{dt-mm}{dt-dd}_{filename}
to add a date before the filename.

Note that all directories must exist.
Note you must enter the full FTP path, starting with a /
Note that (after resolving the {tags}) the name must be the new filename (not the directory where the file should be moved).

Also, make sure to exclude the /voice/archive directory from monitoring.

How do I create a Batch script to accomplish the following:
I need files on a remote FTP server to be moved into an Archive folder on the remote ftp server AFTER download to a local folder.  (I have full rights on the remote ftp server).  OS is Windows 10.
I use WatchFTP for automated downloads which also allows a Batch script to be run for every detected change.
Local download folder path:  C:\User1\Desktop\TodaysFiles
Remote FTP path:  /voice
Remote FTP Archive folder path:  /voice/Archive
Files to be downloaded and then archived on remote ftp:  *abc*;*def*;
There are also files that do NOT need to be downloaded, hence the filter.

Hello Ankur,

Are you running the current release?

On one of those tasks can you enable the option "Keep Session Log" and run the task until it fails.
Then right-click the task and select "backup". Please email me the zip (gert @ gdpsoftware . com).

Note: the user/password are stored inside this zip. You may want to change them in your settings before creating the zip.

hi All,

We use Watch FTP for a client and the FTP jobs stops for few of the FTP abruptly. Currently facing this issue with two FTP's. Had to restart them manually.

Other jobs are looking fine for now.

Can you please let us know what can be done to fix this as logs are not that helpful.

Thanks,
Ankur
