  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!

  2. Run FTPBox as a service

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

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  10. FTPBox does not recognise deletion

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

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  13. Upload only

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

  14. Regex Filters

    Filters could be applied over path, perhaps using regular expressions.

  15. 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.

  17. Send email on successful file upload.

    I would like the ability for FTPBox to send me an email once a file has been successfully uploaded or synced. Preferably to have the email include the filename in the event that I have queued up multiple files, so I know when each has completed to the server.

  19. Crashing on Win7 x64 when saving a file in synced directory

    FtpBox is crashing when i save a file with PHPStorm in the local sync directory. It's a program specific problem because it don't happen with other editors. It would be great if this bug can be fixed.

    Here is the Windows error-report:
