    FTP and SFTP Batch Download Mode

    Batch Download Mode

    Q: How to limit number of files downloading from a SFTP server. We want to move thousands of files per scan but limit the number of files being processed. For example there are 5000 files to move and the batch size is set to 100. So it moves the first 100 files, processes them and downloads the next 100. This will continue until all files are downloaded.

    A: We added an option to achieve this for SFTP (v2023.3.12.0) and FTP (v2023.3.19.0) as Source.

    Download only certain date specific files

    Q: Download only certain date specific files from FTP
    I have an ftp account that has a file for each day of the month in it. I need to download a file each day for that particular Monday – Sunday. This will go into a rename job so for example file 01162023 (for Monday, January 16, 2023) would be renamed to SLMON. File 01172023 would rename to SLTUE, 01182023 SLWED, and so on until 01222023 for SLSUN.

    So once more, I would need to set a download each night to pull a file with that dates name and have it rename. So tonight would download file 01212023 and rename it to SLSAT. Then Sunday would pull a single file for that date. Is that doable?

    A: Yes this is possible, so you would trigger it every evening and it would pick up the file for tomorrow and rename it. This will also work for other source types than FTP.

    1. Please open the File Filter Setup

    – Enable ‘Allow parameters in File Name filter’ in the Advanced Tab:

    Limagito File Mover File Filter setup

    – Set the Filename Include Filter to:

    In my example I’m looking for .pdf files but it could also be like (every type of file):

    Notice the [IncDay+1] so it looks for the next day.
    Limagito File Mover Date specific files

    2. Open the Destination setup
    Limagito File Mover WIN as Destination

    – Rename Tab > Enable Rename Files > Setup Renaming:
    Limagito File Mover Destination renaming options

    – Add the following renaming expression:

    RegEx:   (.*)\.(.*)
    Replacement:   SL%TCD:[IncDay+1]ddd:.\2

    Limagito File Mover Destination renaming setup

    – Customer: Great thanks. What would I do if I pulled it at say 1am for the same day?
    – Limagito: Remove the   [IncDay+1]   in the File Filter AND the Renaming setup

    Verify integrity of ftp file transfers

    Verify integrity of ftp file transfers

    With FTP you can use a couple of ‘Non-standard‘ Commands to verify the integrity of a file transfer (download & upload):

    • XCRC
    • XMD5
    • XSHA1, XSHA256, XSHA512

    In version v2022.6.12.0 of Limagito File Mover we added support for these Commands to:

    • Built-In FTP Server
    • FTP as Source
    • FTP as Destination

    Not all FTP servers support this ‘Non-Standard’ command. You can check this using the ‘Support’ tab in your FTP Destination setup (v2022.6.12.0). Click ‘Connect’ and check if File Verification is supported by the FTP server. In this screenshot we are connected to the Limagito FTP Server.

    Limagito File Moverr Verify integrity of ftp

    If your FTP server supports File Verification then you can enable this in the FTP Source or Destination setup (Verify Tab > Verify File after Copy/Move).  If your FTP Server does not support File Verification and you need this then maybe you can use: link.
