    Sync Files Online

    Does anybody know of some software (pref. freeware) that would sync files on a local system to those on an FTP server automatically? For example, if I were to change anything on the local files, those changes would also occur to the files on the internet.

    Thanks

    If you have control of the server, install rsync. rsync is designed
    for this task and is usually set up as a scheduled script. I have a remote webserver that runs ssh (SFTP) and use rsync to sync files from my local system via ssh.

    Sadly, I don't have control over the server - otherwise, that sounds like a good idea.
