Default Download new files automactily

I'm Useing FlashFXP v 3.4, build 1145, Trail Version, Windows XP
Is there a way to get FlashFXP to connect to a FTP Server every hour to download the new files that have been added to that FTP within that hour? The FTP that I get stuff from adds new files every few minutes and it takes alot of time for me to transfer them manual.. If anyone can help me with this please do, and please explain it since im a newbie here lol... Thanks in advance

queue up a folder that will have those files, save that queue and then create a schedule task that would start flashfxp from a command line loading that queue file and execute transfer.

use windows builtin scheduler(start, programs, accessories, system tools, scheduled tasks)
flashfxp's help file has a section for command line parameters

add windows scheduler task with desired settings. run command should be
"drive:\pathto\FLASHFXP.EXE yourqueue.fqf -go -c2 -tray"
you can find explanation of these and other switches in FlashFXP's help file, under "Advanced" section.

Is it possible to just get the new files?
Cause now, it works like this for me:

First time I'll transferred the whole dir from server A to B.

After this, flashfxp connects every 20-minutes, and transfer all the files from A to B.
Files that is already on server B, is beeing auto-skipped. But, the problem
is that it require that all old files that are on server A is on B too. If not, it's of course starts to transfer this files again, I'm in no need for those files..

Is it possible to solve this in a proper way?

FlashFXP doesn't keep track of which files are old and because of this it doesn't know which ones are new.

This situation is outside the standard functionality of FlashFXP, you would need a custom program that could generate FlashFXP queues based on which files are new and then using that queue transfer the files with FlashFXP.
