  • Hi -

    SyncToy cannot be used to sync to an FTP server as-is but I have seen a solution in the past where there was a solution that would expose an FTP server as an SMB drive. If you do that - you should be able to use SyncToy .

    Thanks

  • I have spent a lot of time looking into this an think WebDrive is about the best solution. It can be configured to use FTPS giving a secure off site facility.

    The only problem I have encountered is that is slower than many other ftp clients.

    It would be great if Synctoy had an option to save directly to remote sites

  • I use a program called SyncBack to sync to my FTP server. I use the Freeware version, and schedule daily syncs. It works really well for me.
