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!

This is a FREE option

The FREE JAVA FTP Scheduler automates FTP uploads and downloads and scans for new tasks every 10 seconds (realtime FTP). The scheduler is easy to understand and uses only one window to provide full control over its functionality. Typical applications are uploading weather station data, webcam images, or any other data from a PC to a webserver. Get the Pro version for delayed scheduled uploads or downloads!
