Upload of files to FTPS from PowerShell

leave a comment »

Recently I’ve updated my PowersShell script to upload files to FTPS (FTP over SSL) server. Below you can find that script. Most important change in comparison to previous one is around the way I read and send data. In previous version this was done thru read of entire file into memory and then just sent it from the buffer. That of course could cause problems in case of large files. New approached uses small buffer (=4096) and send that in peace’s. To find more details about that script please refer to my previous post

$Dir = "D:\FolderWithBackupFilesToMove"
foreach($item in (dir $dir))
    write-output "————————————–"
    $fileName = $item.FullName
    write-output $fileName
    $ftp = [System.Net.FtpWebRequest]::Create("ftp://some.ftp.server.com/someRootFolder/"+$item.Name)
    $ftp = [System.Net.FtpWebRequest]$ftp
    $ftp.UsePassive = $true
    $ftp.UseBinary = $true
    $ftp.EnableSsl = $true
    $ftp.Credentials = new-object System.Net.NetworkCredential("UserName","Password")
    $ftp.Method = [System.Net.WebRequestMethods+Ftp]::UploadFile
    $rs = $ftp.GetRequestStream()
    $reader = New-Object System.IO.FileStream ($fileName, [IO.FileMode]::Open, [IO.FileAccess]::Read, [IO.FileShare]::Read)
    [byte[]]$buffer = new-object byte[] 4096
    [int]$count = 0
        $count = $reader.Read($buffer, 0, $buffer.Length)
    } while ($count -gt 0)
    write-output "+transfer completed"
    write-output "+file deleted"

have fun
