The files should always remain in existence on the computer where documents
were last worked on. The most you can lose is access to files until later
in the day or the following day. FTP is only a courier.

FTP/filestores are much more usable than transfer by E-mail, but with mail
server popping disabled, one can achieve similar, practical use.
