FTP Plugin - executes delete before upload?
Aug 28th, 2014 at 3:22pm
I am using the ftp plugin to upload files to a customer's ftp site. Client says "...when transferring files to us, tries to delete the file on our side before sending it. I'm sure that they're doing it to make sure that they don't overwrite a file. Can we ask them if that's really necessary..."

When I looked at history i see this:

2014-08-26 14:06:16.025;D;Attempt to connect;FtpConnection.cpp (320);
2014-08-26 14:06:16.026;I;     STATECHANGE: Connecting to server;wodFtpNotify.cpp (53);

2014-08-26 14:06:17.016;D;     after putfile;wdopAutoFtp.cpp (851);
2014-08-26 14:06:17.017;I;     File uploaded as /Incoming/DIP/OBQSingleFile/400000047.ZIP;wdopAutoFtp.cpp (857);

Why this is an issue I have no idea but is there anyway to suppress the attempted delete?

Currently you can not prevent this behavior.

WD needs to work with a lot of different types of FTP servers, we found that deleting the file before uploading the file is the best way to prevent certain issues.
