Automate FTP Transfers to Save Time and Get More Done

By: Vladimir Davidenko

Web designers and Web server administrators know all too well just how inefficient and frustrating it can be to work with files stored on an FTP or SFTP server in the traditional way. It is time-consuming and repetitive and far from efficient. Fortunately, however, there is an alternative and one that many people are not even aware of - automate FTP transfers instead! The traditional method of working with files over an FTP server may seem adequate if you only need to do so very occasionally. A regular FTP client is generally satisfactory if all you need to do is upload, replace or download a single file here and there on an infrequent basis. However, when you need to upload and download multiple files or synchronize content between the local computer and the remote FTP or SFTP server, you can quickly see how immensely time-consuming and inefficient the traditional methods can become. Fortunately, FTPGetter 3 Professional ( ) is here to address your concerns and completely revolutionize the way you work with the content of your FTP servers by letting you automate FTP transfers.

The traditional FTP client is really only adequate in cases where you need to manage files over an FTP server on a very occasional basis, such as replacing a file or two sometimes. Once you need to work regularly with data contained on an FTP server and, even more so, when you have to work with multiple FTP servers, the amount of time and work required quickly becomes enormous. When you consider how long it takes just to upload, download or replace a single file, you can easily put the matter into perspective.

First, you have to use your user name and password to log into the server before you can navigate through the directories to reach the file that you want to work with. You then need to wait for each file you need to access to download individually as required. Transfers are often slow as well due to the way that most traditional FTP clients handle the task at hand. Also, you have to be there all the time, staring at the computer screen to ensure that everything works out as intended. FTPGetter 3 Professional completely does away with all of these time-consuming annoyances, however.

FTPGetter 3 Professional provides a wide range of useful features allowing you to effectively automate FTP transfers and synchronize content without the risk of human error or the huge amount of time which would otherwise be required when using the traditional methods. The user interface is intuitive and requires no special knowledge or experience, so there is no need to retrain your staff to use it. FTPGetter 3 Professional may be configured, for example, to automatically log into an FTP server and search for file creations at specified intervals. It can then make sure that all files on the remote server are kept current at all times, ensuring that you lose no important data during the process. Once configured, everything is automatic - there is no further need for any user interaction. FTPGetter 3 Professional also supports file masks, allowing you to search the contents of a server for a specific type of file.
