Task Keep Shutting Off
Jul 21st, 2020, 2:18am
 
I am evaluating WatchFTPVersion 4.2.1.0 (64 bit).

The tasks perform fine, but after they are done running they are stopping. Task icon changes from green play button to red stop button, and it says "stopped" instead of "sleeping". I have to manually re-start the task each day. I'd like it to run continuously.

Any help is appreciated.

Currently not running as a service. Windows directory is a USB drive.

Thank you.

Hi,

Most likely thereis a logoff event. When you have a task NOT running as a Service, it behaves as any other program (notepad for example) and closes when the user is logging off.

Thanks for the reply, Gert. I tried it as a service, still no luck.

Here's a little more background. There are three tasks running. The first task is watching a folder where several new small files are added each day. That one works great and never shuts itself off.

Two other tasks are watching folders where only one file changes per day, but those files are larger (3 GB and 300 MB respectively). It is those two tasks that shut off after running.

Why would one task continue to work, but the other two shut off? They are all on the same remote server.

Thank you.

Not sure why they stop.

Can you do this for ONE of your tasks:
On "FTP Settings" enable "Keep Session Log"
Run the task until it stops by itself. Do NOT restart it yet.
Right-click the task, select "Backup"
Email me the zip this creates (do not post on the forum): gert @ gdpsoftware.com

Note that the backup contains your FTP userid/password. You may want to change them in your settings before you backup.
