Compare contents of two folders on server (2 posts)

    I'm copying CMS web files to a subfolder on my Bluehost account. The Files folder contains lots of files and folders and is very slow to copy. Sometimes the connection times out and I have to start again.

    Is there any way for Fetch to compare the original and the copy, both of which reside on the server, and only copy across the missing files?

    I just found the solution - almost hidden at the base of the Mirror function instructions:

    You can mirror two remote folders (click the Remote tab in the left-hand pane, and choose two remote folders).
