AutoFTP Program

AutoFTP is a simple and very low resource usage program to monitor a chosen file on your PC and to automatically FTP that file to an FTP location if the file has changed.

The program allows the setting of a polling interval to check for a change in your chosen file and also the ability to define certain FTP errors that are transient and thus allow the program to retry the FTP upload up to four times before reporting a hard error.  You can also force upload a file that has not changed.

A really useful utility program for automating the upload of a file to a website or other location.

The AutoFTP Program  is currently Freeware with a Careware/Charity status and objective. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Careware).                    

Please Donate to my supported charity which I would very much appreciate, as will they, and will keep me developing and supporting the programs.

These programs run on Windows up to and including Windows 10.

AutoFTP Current Release Information

Note! I check all my software before uploading with Malwarebytes Pro and Microsoft Windows Defender Antivirus.  In addition I use VirusTotal.com to confirm as they have over 60 scanner engines.  Despite these actions you may find that your AntiVirus/Security software may flag my software.  This is because I use a source protection obfuscator which confuses them.  Please report to me via Email any cases where you find any issue with downloading my software.   When I receive such reports I download myself and revalidate.  I then contact the anti virus software vendor with a false positive report.   It can take them 48 hours or longer to process and update their definitions.  Meanwhile you can also use VirusTotal.com for yourself and decide if you want to create an exception in your software.

Thanks to Mark T.

Were it not for Mark T. then AutoFTP would probably not exist.  He wanted a means of automatically uploading a data file to his website when it changed.   He helped tremendously with testing and ironing out some issues with regards to timings and error handling.  Thank you Mark.

Thanks to Everyone Else

Just like to say thanks to everyone using my program.  With each release not only are new functions being added BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY those bugs (silly or large) that people care to tell me about are getting fixed.  So if you see/experience a bug of any description then please let me know.

The Program is currently Freeware (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freeware) with a Careware/Charity status and objective (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Careware).  It operates with no limitations.  The author reserves the right to change the program status and limitations on any future release.  Existing releases will retain their status and your right to use them but support may not be available.

AutoFTP written in Visual Basic and .NET V4.5.  The program is currently portable and will run from any "user" directory it is placed in.  It makes no registry changes or any other system changes so is benign in nature and operation and protects your privacy.  The program does however by virtue of it's designed function make an FTP connection but only to a location specified by the user.  If a Windows system directory, like Program Files, is chosen then administrator rights will have to be assigned to the program.  For security reasons it is suggested/recommended that a User directory is chosen.

The program makes no hidden calls home and will not automatically check for program.

Whilst AutoFTP is designed to monitor one chosen file at a time you can have multiple copies of the program in different directories to monitor other files and FTP them to different locations.

The program has a simple in-built Help function.

Software and Hardware Requirements

The programs is written in .NET Visual Basic (V4.5) as a portable applications that has no install program and does not make Windows Registry changes..  This means that basically it will only run on a Windows PC that has .NET V4.5 or higher installed.  I've not researched the Linux and Apple platforms to see if they can support .NET based applications.  If they do and you can get this program to work on any other platform, e.g. Linux and under Wine then please let me know and I will put the details here for others to see.
