The professional tool to automate FTP, SFTP, FTPS

and schedule FTP batch jobs

Need help writing a script? Have any question about ScriptFTP?
Hi, everyone.

I created several scripts that sync local folders from remote FTP. Over time the number of files has increased significantly and reached more than 8,000 files and counting. I'm currently using the SYNC command together with a wildcard (*2019*.csv), but this still results in 30 minutes run-time. I tried using ADDEXCLUSION, but this did not make things quicker.

My question is - does anyone have an idea how to speed up the process, I'm sure there is an elegant way of doing this.

Thanks in advance for your time and efforts.

Yes, that is expected. With a big amount of files (>1K of them) ScriptFTP has to ask the server, the file dates, sizes etc for all of them. I think that there is no way to speed up the process, at least using FTP/FTPS/SFTP and not other protocol.
