How to Write and Automate an FTP Script to send or upload New Files only?

I am have Windows 2003 and I need to write a script or BAT file (something simple, if possible) to connect to a remote server and send or upload the new files only, based on a time stamp or a file name..

How can this batch process of FTP check the timestamp or the file name?

Shall I just add it the Scheduler to automate it?


Let me know if there are ready made software on the internet that can do this on Windows 2003

Thanks,
Shamsan

Thanks, it sounds great to have such a tool, specially they have the option of "Customized" versions.  Big Thanks.

I am wondering can you set it up to Upload the newely created files based File Name rather than Time Stamp?
at the same time is it able to check for the Time Stamp to upload only newely created files?


Big Thanks

it can check for the timestamp but i haven't tried using it for a specified filename....however, reading through the help file it would seem like you can.  It supports wildcards for filenames so you can either specify the filename or use the wildcard to filter.....

straight from the help file :-)  ------> "ScriptFTP is able to syncronize a remote directory from a local folder or viceversa"

download the 30 day eval and test it out...it's fully functional

I would like to add the following information for all from my experience,

I have tried SFtp (Secure FTP Automation tool) from http://www.hiteksoftware.com/  and after a couple of tests I bought the software becasue it has most if not all the features of FTP & Secured FTP scripts that you need to have in a single software and most beautiful feature is -> it is a multi-platform software..

Thanks,
