Does anyone know of an FTP client that will automatically download any new content added to an FTP site?

You can also manage these types of file transfers using different methods , in our environment ( Banking ) ; our SFTP servers automatically re-names files that are downloaded to .processed ; so once a file is downloaded by FTP client ; it gets renamed to .processed ; then I setup a filter in my fTP client to exclude .processed files ; so that same files won't get re-downloaded.

on SFTP side ; I created an event rule to run a rename batch file once a file is downloaded.

You can write a Robo-FTP script to do it.  This example I found assumes you will be removing the files as they are downloaded but at the bottom it says you can use the but at the bottom it mentions built-in database commands that can be used to track the state of the remote filesystem without changing it:  http://www.robo-ftp.com/help/3.9/the_hot_receive_feature.htm
