use ftp's "ls" command to check for the filename, put the whole thing in some "if then else" condition.
This is generic answer, since you didn't show the relevant parts of your script.

Its always better to map the checksum of the file .... at source and destination pool. if the checksum is matched... then ..file is copied successfully.. for sure..

Use " cksum " for the file size varification .

The -s option gives the file size in blocks, including indirect blocks, for each entry.

Other than some specified commands, you cannot use it in ftp mode. So better to delete zero byte files in the landing directory and start the ftp for those file again..

Need to see your code...........
