  1. Lower CPU usage

    When idle FTPbox is using more then 5% CPU on an i7-3517U @ 1,9 GHz with win7 x64.

    Dropbox uses less than 0,01% when idle.

    • Icelandic letters in filenames

      Noticed that Icelandic letters and probably other "weird" letters in other languages do not sync right between folders. Something to keep in mind.

        • German umlauts

          Hi Guys,

          I just noticed, that you have problems with german umlauts inside the filename.

          Is it possible that you take about these characters in the nearby future?

          Best Regards...

          • Download speed

            Just telling how fast it's downloading / uploading in kb or mb or whatever. Doesn't need to say estimated time remaining, like that other suggestion. Just tell me how fast it's going!

            • Read port number from conf file, make open source!

              I have configured a non-default port number for my SFTP server. The port number is written to the conf-file but not loaded into the GUI when I'm asked for the password. Please fix this.

              Also, please release the source code so we can fix errors and be sure that the data is not sent to another server.

              • Shell extention removal in settings

                Generally a good little program, when You want to sync files during web development.

                However, I miss the ability to remove FTPBox from Shell menu, as I don't need it.

                • Choose remote path outside user's home folder

                  The way the server is setup I can log into my account but start at my home directory. The files I need to sync with however are located elsewhere. I can't get there unless I can manually set the directory structure.

                  So be able to click on Remote Directory and enter something like /this/is/the/directory/I/want

                    • sync from local to remote deletes the local file

                      Hi,

                      when I create a new local file, it will be deleted instead of copied to the ftp-folder after sync process.
                      I guess that's not, how it should work ;)
                      Using the newest version...

                      Beste Regards,
                      Stefan Schütz

                        • Can't transfer photos to Photobucket.com via FTP

                          FTPBox is exactly what I've been looking for... except I can't get it to work with Photobucket.com. The error messages in the debug log says "Prohibited file name: ~ftpb_s20145029a.jpg". Is there a work around for this or something I can change in configuration. Is this a function of the way Photobucket has their FTP server configured? Can't wait to use this product.
