How to rename file during transfer?

Post by aylincarr1990 »

Hello,

I use SyncBackPro to copy it from a csv file from an ftp server to a windows folder.
The problem is that I have another program that reads the files in the folder.
As a result, it happens that the file is not processed by my other program until it has finished downloading.
Is it possible to make syncbackpro modify the extension (example: file.tmp) and when the download is finished it returns the original one (.csv file)?
Thank you for your explanations.

Look at checking the box in Copy/Delete, Advanced "Make safe copies (copy files using a temporary filename and then rename the file on success)" to see if it might do what you want.
