Help with Automated Transfer/Synchronize

Hello all,

I’m hoping someone can help me wrap my head around how to schedule an automated transfer/synchronize from one SFTP server to another (in this case Production and Development).

In Production (which I assume would be remote) there are 2 files that get automatically uploaded each day. Once those two files are processed through an interface they are appended with a timestamp and moved into an archive folder. As an example:



What I’d like to do is schedule an automatic sync twice daily to copy both files over to a specific folder in our Development environment (which I assume would be local) and in the process, strip out the timestamp so that once the file is moved to our Dev server it would just look like this:


Both environments are SFTP and accessible via WinSCP. Maybe this is all really simple and I’m overthinking all of this…I just don’t want to inadvertently screw something up.

Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated!
