Hi all - I have files in Folders, many levels deep. I need to FTP those files, all individually, into 1 single folder on a remote computer.  Looking for a solution, such as:

Does anyone know an FTP Program that has an Option to list the Local files without the Folder structure? Like a "Flat File" list of a folder tree.  (Mac would be great, but can move them to Windows if need to)

Thanks in advance for any help!

- Brian

filly question but it may help, since you can react the remote computers, copy all the folder and files to your PC, and then search them by *.*

One thing to consider... How will you want to resolve name collisions?

you could use if_exists on collisions and append the filename.

You can script that behavior in Robo-FTP with this command:

RCVFILE "*" /subdirs /flat 

Open in new window


But I don't know if that helps you since, as far as I know, Robo-FTP on works on Windows.

Good Point on the file name collisions.  I don't need the Duplicates, but they won't hurt me either ... Hmmm ... I'd rather keep multiple copies if possible. But not really a big deal, and dups won;t bother me, as long as at least ONE of the dupl file names stays.  What were you thinking?

We have them on Mac & Windows, so a solution either one is OK.
There are approx 50,000 files, with approx 15000 Folders ... 2 or 3 files in each folder. So the Folder "depth" is simple, just 1 level down. Just lots of them...
