I know there are probably lots of other features requested but this feature would make FZ stand out more.
The goal is to keep a folder on a server and the folder on my client machine in sync, in so far as to download new content that shows up. I want the client machine running FZ to 'regularly' poll the server and compare the files on the server with those of the local machine. (The polling time ideally can be set in local preferences.)
When a new file is added FZ should start downloading. The mechanism for detecting what is new could be to compare the folders contents by filename, size and possibly creation date.
While this is a feature MOST people won't need there is probably a smaller group who can really use this and it would make FileZilla outshine the other clients.
Thanks for considering this.
