Session Menu

The session menu includes the command to save/load a session and to activate the transfer scheduler.

Save the current session to a file. The current FTP site information and the entries in the Transfer Queue will be preserved. This command is only available when you are connected to an FTP site.

Schedule Current Queue

Use this command to schedule transfer of the current queued files. A dialog appears to allow you to specify at what date and time you want to start the transfer. In addition you can enforce a finish date and time by checking the Force finish time check Box and selecting the end date and time.

Pressing the button TURBOFTP00000000.gif on the right side of the launch time field or end time field will set correspondent date and time to current system time, which can be convenient when adjusting the date/time value.

After you click the Schedule button, the countdown will begin. The button will then be changed to an Abort button and can be used to stop the scheduling.

Leave the check box Minimize to system tray selected if you want TurboFTP window to be minimize as an icon in the system tray (on the right side of the Windows task bar) during scheduling. You can bring up the window again by clicking on the icon. Check the check box to minimize the window again.

TurboFTP will take action specified in the On Transfer Complete section [Options | Events] upon transfer completion (either forced or not). For example, if you want TurboFTP to shutdown the computer after finishing the scheduled transfer, ensure that you have made correct selection in [Options | Events].

For more advanced scheduling option like scheduled session or folder synchronization, you need to Task Scheduler.
