OzScouse Posted February 6, 2020 Share Posted February 6, 2020 I have been successfully using Classic FTP in a WIN 10 environment. No complaints on its functionality However, I am regularly updating an entire website being a large database of 2,525 connected files of all types e.g. JPG, HTML, DOC and many others. This is working ok in terms of reliability and result. However, it takes a long time (like 4 hours +). I need to find a way of doing this faster. I am aware that there is a filter so that files with the same name do not get uploaded. However, that filter needs and extra dimension - I need a filter that will only upload files that are either (a) unchanged from the version with the same name already on the target destination directory or (b) a new file that is not present on the directory at all. I hope that makes sense. The reason for the former condition is that I am modifying the files but not changing their names - they are being updated - so Classic FTP needs to be able to detect if a file has been changed or not. If the file is exactly the same as the one currently held, then the upload can be skipped. Maybe this can be detected, I don't know. How do I do that ? Any help much appreciated. john Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
