I have various profiles set to mirror network shares from a WD MyDrive to a local USB HDD on a Win10 PC. I also mirror to an older WD MyDrive I keep as an emergency fallback. It has temperamental network share performance so I use FTP instead.
If a Word doc is open on the source WD MyDrive, SyncBack successfully copies the file and associated temp file to a local folder destination. If it's an FTP folder destination though, it throws up a log error that the associated temp file is locked and cannot be copied.
I'm using 18.104.22.168 (free) as it seems to provide more FTP options. I can't even find the FTP options in the current version. Have I missed a setting or is it just the way things are with FTP shares/destinations? I suppose I could create a "~" filter to skip the temp file or change to a local source then onto the FTP, but I'm just wondering if this is normal?

Difference with local and FTP destination (locked file error)
SyncBackFree is the freeware version of SyncBack. It is *not* an evaluation version of SyncBackPro/SE.
