Transfer from Google Drive to FTP

#1 Post by mrpilot » 2020-01-16 14:49

I am looking for the possibility to make an daily automated transfer from Google Drive to an FTP adress. For this reason I am considering buying FileZilla Pro - but I am unsure if this is at all possible using FileZilla Pro?
I have only been able to find description that the program can assist with transfer from local PC. Sorry if it is a common asked question - have really tried to search for the issue, but with no luck.

FileZilla Pro cannot be used for automated scheduled tasks.

while filezilla is not apple scriptable

it may be possible to write an applescript that uses the standard additions and system events to emulate keyboard and mouse clicks.

you can even use applescript in combination with automator to screen scrape type of automations witch means you would have to time the events and blindly download.

then make a cron script to run the applescript a given time.

maybe if enough people demand the feature they will add it.

I think I found another way by using Microsoft Power Automate.
