I want the software to auto download files from the server and auto delete the files from server after the download is finished. I have tried, but I cannot make this work. Can you please provide instructions?

It is easy to configure Auto FTP Manager to automatically download files from a server and delete the files from the server after downloading.

Here are detailed instructions:
1. Click on 'New Profile' icon from tool bar

2. Select the Type of Transfer and select Automated Transfer Profile for type of connection. Click Next.

3. In the case of PC Folder to FTP server profile: Enter PC folder location and click Next. Then enter FTP connection details like FTP address, username, password, port number and enter root folder location. Click the Next button.

4. From 'Action rules' select 2nd check box for 'Transfer files from {FTP server name} to {PC_Path} and uncheck other checkboxes if any are selected.

5. You will see an option for 'After Transfer', select 'Delete' from drop down.

6. Click on 'Configure' button for 'Schedule'

7. Create schedule as per your requirement (Once, daily , weekly, monthly ,Custom interval or On application launch) and save it.

8. Click on Next button, enter the profile name and click on 'Finish' button.

Now when schedule runs, the files will be downloaded from the server and deleted automatically after the download is completed.
