A customer supplies us files on a regular basis.
We use an FTP client to download these files.

Is there an automated way of doing this?
eg. poll the FTP server folder every 5 minutes and download any contents to a windows folder automatically

Save time on FTP/SFTP updates! Plan your uploads and automate the workflow. Schedule and automate file transfers with a centralized console. Let your computer move or synchronize information securely between home and office automatically according to the schedule!
