FTP dll creates unwanted file copies

Post by paul.gobey@eon-is.co.uk » Wed Jun 10, 2009 11:32 pm

Firstly loving the ftp dll, but (you just knew there was going to be a but)the GET is leaving a copy of the files in the profile of the account that runs the script and when those files are >5GB the c: drive is filling fast,now for any wise guys who scan read, this is a copy of the file that appears as if by magic but only sometimes, the destination for the files is one with enough space.I assume this is used as temporary holding space by http://ftp.dll, can I redirect this temporary folder? how does http://ftp.dll determine the location of the temp storage?
wish listcan I have an FTP List/dir,

The FTP component uses WinInet, so it uses the same settings for temporary files as Internet Explorer does.

Is there a way to change the upload type to ascii mode or binary mode when using the ftp.dll?

Thanks for getting back to me I can try and re-direct this location for the service account that runs the scripted ftp. This way when the ftp.dll randomly leave thes ftp'd data in the temporary location it won't cause so many problems (5 gb of extra files on the system drive at random is not desirable)
