how to setup filezilla to utodownload

Have a costumer that has to connect to an ftp server everyday and downlaod some folder and files, he has been doing it manually vis explorer until last week I set up filezilla for him and he's been doing it via filezilla now.

Is there a way to setup filezilla to check everyday at the ftp server and download anything that is new automatically in to a local folder???

If it is possible how to I set it up.

If not is there another free ftp client that will allow me to do it?

thank you

I'm not sure if Filezilla will support a scheduled job. You might want to consider writing a batch file to make the transfer and then set it up as a scheduled task.

This article can you help you write the script.

Not sure of a Free one... but there are boatloads at a reasonable price that can. Able FTP is like $89 or so. You could also use a program like Automate wheich can do MUCH MUCH more.

I would like to sceond the recomendation of writing the bat and then setting it as a scheduled task. it is UBER simple to do. I have 60 remote machince that push files up to an ftp every night what a batch script and scheduled task.
