I am asumming you are using iis as your ftp server.  In that case you can use iissync.
Replicating Configuration Settings

 
To replicate configuration settings from one Web or FTP server to another

    * On the source (master) server, at the command prompt, navigate to the utility's folder, %SystemRoot%\system32\inetsrv.
    * Replicate the configuration settings by typing: iissync destination, where destination is the computer name of the server on which you want to replicate configuration settings.
    * To replicate configuration settings from the master computer to several other computers simultaneously, list the names, separated by spaces, after the iissync command. For example iissync clusternode_2  clusternode_3  ... and so on.

Notes

    * You must run this utility as needed in order to maintain a reliable replication of configuration settings across both server nodes. This utility does not automatically synchronize configuration settings or recognize configuration changes when they occur.
    * If the destination server already contains an IP address bound to a host name and port, that IP address is not changed when the configuration is copied.
    * Clusters must already exist for the Iissync.exe utility to function. If the computer name used is incorrect, an error is returned and replication does not take place.

How about this, its a perl program to mirror multiple ftp sites.  You should be able to install perl on either server.

I found FTPSync for windows, but ti does not support scheduling. I want it to compare every 30sec - 1min.

Super Flexible File Synchronizer does the job. It uses FTP and local disk for replication. Works very nicely.
