FTP Sync is a free command line application to synchronize files between two ftp sites or local directories. Its main purpose is to automate the synchronization of files between two ftp servers or between a ftp server and a local directory.
This can be helpful for instance for webmasters or coders who design their websites and projects offline and want to automatically synchronize the updated files to a web server.
A second purpose could be an automated backup of files on a website to another web server or a local computer.
The configuration of the file synchronization process or backups are configured in standard Windows ini files. It is recommended to take a look at the extensive documentation to configure the program properly.
Three demo configuration options are included in the download. They demonstrate many features and parameters of the program.
An alternative to FTP Sync is the popular software WinSCP which can also be used to automatically synchronize data between local computer systems and servers. Information on how to create a batch file can be found in the winSCP forum.
