Hi, sorry for the late reply.

Is this with the current v4 release? At startup it should detect (and fix) database corruption automatically.

We have a few reports like this, a corrupt history.db database file. Thus far we were never able to reproduce (sadly).

There are 2 things you can do to help us find (and hopefully fix) this issue.

1. Let us run your task
Send us a backup of your task (stop the task, right-click it and select "Backup") and allow us to run it against your FTP server. Obviously we will change some settings (like email notification and "delete after download").

If you do not like "nr 1":

2. Send us your task
On FTP Settings, enable the option "Keep Session log" and run the task until you see the problem (corrupt db) again. After it crashes edit the task and set the user/password to "dummy". Then create/email us the backup telling us NOT to run the task.

Hi,

WatchFTP is crashing randomly after a few days with a error (see attachment).

I know how to delete or rename the history.db file and start WatchFTP again. But this can not be the final solution.

Do you have other solutions for me to give WatchFTP more stability?

best regards  :-/

I think this is the way you should go. It will obviously download all dated files, but ONLY ONCE. On the "Synchronization" settings window make sure
- Only download new files IS SET
- Force download if local file does not exist is NOT SET

I received your message last saturday, I answered (on sunday):
Can you enable the option "Keep session log" and run the task. When it stops, right-click the task and select "backup". Send me the backup to look at.

It would be even better if you email me login details so I can experiment a bit myself.

I have a client where I need to downlaod two files.  They are lazy.  One files is ABC.csv and the other is xyz_20190305.csv.  They never delete the dated version of the second file.

I have tried different filters for the download

first - ABC.csv;XYZ_{dt-yyyy}{dt-mm}{dt-dd}.csv but this does not get the second file.

Second - ABC.csv;XYZ_*.csv but this gets all of the dated files.

After I download both I want to set of a batch file using watch directory.  This is currently set to go off at a certain time of day but I would rather this job goes off when both files are downloaded.

Anyhelp would be appreciated

Gert,

I have emailed you via the system and directly on this issue 3-4 times.  Can you check your spam or let me know how you would like to proceed.

I have a site that I would like to monitor.  I used to monitor it all the time and now I get the Unimplimented error.  I can access via another FTP client.

Hello Eric,

On FTP settings enable "keep session log" at the bottom. Then run the task until you see the error and stop it. Edit the task (set user/password to nonsense), right-click and select "Backup" from the popup menu. Now email me this backup to look at.

Gert

Hi, I am a paid user of WatchFTP and am using the program to monitor and download files from our company's bank. I've setup the program to monitor the site and download the files to a networked drive. Using Filezilla I can see and download the files manually on the host site but WatchFTP reports that Directory ******.**** is blacklisted, skipped.

How do I resolve this?

Thanks,
Eric

Hello Daniel,

Can you email me (gert@gdpsoftware.com) the login details for this server so I can do some experiments?
