WatchFTP v3.5 released

A few days ago we released a major update for our FTP Monitor Program WatchFTP.

Free Upgrade

This is a free update for all customers. Just install the evaluation version on top of your current install so it will keep your settings and tasks. If you are upgrading a 32bit version to the 64bit version, make sure to read 64bit upgrade instructions first.

Changes in this release

This new release has a new file compare engine. Previous versions compared the FTP site to your local Windows directory, this release maintains a small database with FTP file information. This allows you, for example, to email notifications without downloading the detected files.

Also new is a "what has changed" window. Select a date in the past and (typically) the current date and you will see everything that has changed (new files, deleted files...) between those dates.

WatchDirectory v4.7.2 - FTP Upload bugfix

Today we released v4.7.2 of WatchDirectory, our program to monitor folders and files.

Changes in this release

Most important is a bug fix we implemented for the FTP Upload plugin. When a detected file was already present on the FTP server and is exactly the same size as the detected file and the connection to the FTP server was lost (or never established), the detected file would not be uploaded.

If you recently upgraded to WatchDirectory v4.7 and use the FTP Upload task, please install this new release.

More information

See this post for more information on changes and fixes in the v4.7 release of WatchDirectory.
