  1. Delete or move files after upload

    I love FTP Box. I suggest 1-way Upload should offer a delete of local file after upload or move processed uploads to a local backup folder.

    • Sync is not working properly.

      Hi Team,

      I've uploaded one file via FTPBox. After that I've deleted it from my server as I've processed that file and now No need of that file So After deleted from server it should also deleted from FTPBOX Folder?
      But It's not deleted from that folder even when I've started syncing then that file is again uploaded on server.

      I think that is wrong.

            • Preserve timestamps

              FTPbox is a very useful program, but it is seriously messing up the timestamps of my files. Sometimes it will set an entire directory to the same time. When a file is updated from one computer to another, the timestamp should be the time the file was changed on the source computer, not the time of the update. Times should never be changed unless the file has actually changed.

              • Closing the setup dialog causes crash

                At least in the "Setup" dialog, when I hit the X button the close the window I get an "unhandled exception" error. (I'm on Windows 8.1.)

                If you're still actively developing it, that might be something to look into. In any case, thanks for making FTPbox!

                • Uploading files smart

                  Upload files will be in a more eficient way, for example track files that had been changed and news, also deleted to sync from local to ftp

                    • Windows 10 not displaying sync list

                      I run FTPBox on 2 Windows 10 PCs, both x64. One works fine. The other, a new Lenovo laptop, will not display the synchronization list or any notifications. I have ensured the app is set to allow notifications. It still works fine, syncs properly, but simply doesn't alert me to successful sync or allow me to view sync status.

                      FTPBox is a great app!

                                I leave FTPbox running (with the client at system tray) and even when I'm not programming, it keeps syncing unchanged files.

                                  • Add support for Active transfers

                                    I cannot connect to a site that only supports 'Active' transfer mode. There seems to be no way to manually set this and the application does not automatically set this type as needed. Adding this site also locks up the program causes a fatal error.

                                    • Delete or move files after upload

                                      The only thing I am missing is an option to delete or move files to an backup folder after upload. I would use FTPbox to upload files that are being processed on the other server. Right now FTPbox would keep uploading the same files over and over.

                                      • Notification Emails on Error ie when ever sync fails

                                        When we use ftp, some times there will be connection issues and failures will occur. In such cases we can have an option to send out a notification email automatically. This will help a lot

                                          I wish to propose you to include an option for change the access rights to files and folders (chmod). Indeed, every time i must launch a "SSH command", else, the visitor seen an error 500. You can use a traditional FTP command (like Filezilla in menu context) or use SSH access for this system. Best regards and have good continuation to you.

                                          Cyril.
