Moving Files From an FTP One By One

Is there a way to have Flow move files from an FTP one by one rather than in a whole batch?

 

For example, let's say I drop 50 files onto my FTP folder, it seems like Flow then tries to move them all in one go, which is resulting in an overload and I'm getting a 30% Fail rate.

 

If I drop the files one by one, the Flow works fine.

 

So, is there a way to instruct Flow to go file by file, rather than trying to move them all at once?

 

Thanks.

Re: Moving Files From an FTP One By One

Hi Alice, it's ok I found a work around that is acceptable. It involves some manual work but it's not a big deal. Basically we're transferring the files to our own FTP and then manually moving them over to the client FTP.
