FTP Task Scheduler
The Task Scheduler allows you to run two types of schedule task -- queue
session task and directory synchronization task -- either once
A queue session task is simply to load a session (in form of .tbx
file) into the transfer queue and then transfer those files.
A directory synchronization task is to perform synchronization between a
local and a remote directory automatically, using predefined synchronization
scheme. This process is very similar to that of Folder
Synchronizer, except that it is done without user intervention.
Note that if there are multiple instances of TurboFTP running at the same
time, only one of them can manipulate the Task Scheduler and run schedule

The Task Scheduler dialog contains the following options:
Add Session Task
Session task is selected, an File Open Dialog will appear and allow you
to specify the session file
path. Then the Schedule Task
Settings dialog will show up, where you can specify when and how often
to run the task.
Add Sync Task
This will create a directory synchronization task. At this time if the program
is not connected to any FTP server an dialog will pop out and allow you
to select target FTP server from the stored sites in your Site Address Book.
After that the Schedule Task
Settings will show up for you to set up the sync task.
Add Sync Task with wizard
Equivalent to menu [Tools | Schedule Sync Task Wizard]. Create a sync task
step by step with the help of this wizard.
Remove a schedule task from the list.
Modify a selected schedule task. Editting a schedule task will not change
the original start run time unless you manually change it. If you change
the start run time or the forced end time, their validity will be verified
against the current date and time.
Clear all task in the task list.
Whenever a schedule task is started it will be logged in the file called
sched.log located in the application data folder for TurboFTP. This button
will open the schedule log file.
Clear the log file content.
Check the checkbox if you want to disable all schedule tasks (if any). If
the scheduler is enabled and there exist any active schedule tasks you will
see a scheduler icon in the TurboFTP's status bar, as illustrated below.
Fig. Icon on status bar indicating that the scheduler is enabled and there
is at least one active schedule task.
Tip: You can double click the scheduler icon on status bar
to launch Task Scheduler.
