    • 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!

                  • Fix the process was terminated due to unhandled exception error

                        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.

                              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

                              • Rights

                                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.

                                  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.

                                  • Custom Charset setting, separate for each account

                                    Hi,
                                    The Program is necessary and helpful. Thank you!
                                    Unfortunately we have to connect to numerous different ftp-servers, and some of them have troubles with non-English characters. FileZilla has a special option "Charset - Use custom charset" and if we use the option with value "windows-1251" these ftp-servers can be readable. Otherwise we get an error with transferring files with non-English filenames (with options "Charset - Autodetect" or "Charset - Force UTF-8").
                                    The FTPBox program has no charset option and has a problem with transferring files with non-English names from those ftp-servers. The case is applicable for individual site/account.

                                    • Copy opened files from FTP server to Local Machine

                                      Hi,
                                      Congratulations for excelent work!

                                      The program have a bad problem.
                                      If i try sync files from a FTP server and this server been using the files in any process, the FTPBox will crash!
                                      Is important to fix that!

                                      Thanks everyone for the great work!

                                      • Japanese File name could not upload.

                                        Japanese File name could not upload.

                                        think I have failed to process the character code.

                                        Japanese character code in Windows has been used Unicode or Shift-JIS is.

                                        Thank you improvement.

                                          I'd like to use FTPBox to move files to my webserver and keep them there, even when I delete them on my computer.
