SyncBackPro Job to always download newest file version from URL?

Post by HSeldon25034 »


Is there a way to configure a Job in syncback pro to use as source a static URL (a direct download link).... download the file and hash check it if it is a newer version of the file? The URL links to a file that is always named the same, so I imagine there would need to be an intermediary download to examine for properties and hash checking against the existing file (same named)

The process I envisioned:
1) download from SRC url link ->to-> DST temp file
2) hash check existing DST [non-temp file] against the temp file
4) if has check is different... check for file properties indicating new version
5) if new version... move previous version to "DST\archived\" archived location
6) Then rename temp file to original file name [and save hash / file version to text file]
