  1. Windows client crashing on Windows7 (64bit)

    Hi,
    thanks so far for the great work. I'm in the moment trying different sync clients (FTPBox, Sparkleshare, OwnCloud, Syncany) and we will see which one will finally win.
    Yours is at least
    a) the easiest to install
    b) has the smallest requirements for special servers
    c) handles the webspace used best

    however I'm still missing the complete sync (including deletes) and there is still a problem with the stability, as your client frequently crashes on me on Win7. However, running it as in "WinXP"-Compatibily mode and as a admin seems to stabilize the program...

    Keep on the good work!

    • Run FTPBox as a service

      Rather than run on a user desktop session, have FTPBox run as a service.

      • One-way update

        Under some circumstances, it would be nice to also be able to update only, like just upload new files, instead of synchronizing both ways.

          • Multiple files

            It would be so nice to be able to sync multiple files from/to multiple folders, instead of using only one destination folder and one source folder.

            • Multi-account real time syncing

              Hi,
              Great program. I would really like to use it in our research group for, for example, automatic backup of the experimental data. The only feature which is really missing is the automatic synchronization of many accounts at the same time. I would then link into different FTP server catalogues from different machines simultaniously etc.

                    • FTPBox does not recognise deletion

                      When a file is deleted (either remotely or locally) FTPBox simply recreates the deleted file from the other location.

                      • Sync file dates

                        Hi,
                        many compliments for your job, for being a beta is working pretty well.

                        It would be very useful for me if the synced file would keep creation and modification dates.

                        Maybe it depends from the server, but I think that could be possible to create a kind of register as a file on the ftp server, keeping those dates. The client would use this file to write the dates during the syncronizations.

                        Thanks
                        Federico

                        • to build a progressbar or list of files which get synced currently

                          Hi,

                          it would be great to see what is currently going on, when the sync is in process.
                          I think of a list showing all file to sync and some are already handled the are gray, one is in process, there a progress bar is shown and some are not handled yet, they are black.

                                        Hi,

                                        We struggled with the install a bit as we could'nt really find any documentation, simple getting started guides, locations of settings files etc. I think this would help your project quite a bit if there was better docs!

                                          Procces FTPbox,exe take lot of proccesor time..about 7-15% and fans are running with top speed. When i kill this process, everything is fine.
