I am scheduling some reports to be ran in the evenings and send them to different Network folders. I want to be able to automate the process of taking those files and FTPing them to a  vendor daily, so that I don't have to touch anything. Have it either be scheduling using a FTP Client or just when something is sent to that Network folder it knows it has to FTP the file and clean it out of that Network Folder. I have tried to accomplish this with the free FileZilla client and cannot seem to accomplish what I want to do. Let me know what you are using to accomplish this and if you have the steps that would be very beneficial as well. Thanks.

I use WS_FTP Pro and it has a built-in scheduler utility. It has very flexible userid setups.

I do not know whether it can clean out a folder (transfer and delete originals). It has a trial period so it would be easy to test. ... Thinkpads_User

You can try using Robocopy and NetDrive. With Netdrive you can create a network drive that points to a FTP server and configure a shceduled task to run robocopy to automatically copy files. Both are very easy to use.

We ended up going with a 3rd party company that wrote a script for use that was able to automate the FTP process as well as do the daily maintenance on the FTP directories and create error log files as well.
