I suggest you ...

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!

Best,
Jan

        FTP Box repeatedly crashed on Windows 10. I need to find something more reliable, although the ease of use here is appealing. Has this problem been fixed in an update perhaps? I use FTPBox to relay the metadata from our music program to our encoder and I need to be able to count on that happening.

        The FTP box shows "sync complete" even though the sync is still running in the background. The window in the taskbar is not up-to-date, and the cyclic synchronization does not start automatically.

        @goldengel.ch: Is it possible that you share the source code of 2.6.4.4.? Github fork, maybe?
        I want to make some improvements, but don't want to use the official 2.6.3. as a basis.

        For those who wish a monitor...

        First, create a task for ftpbox in windows task scheduler. Remember the name you gave the task. I named mine "Start ftpbox"

        @Echo off
        cls
        echo Starting FTBOX Monitor
        echo ======================
        @set counter=0
        :query
        @schtasks /query /fo list /tn "Start ftpbox" | @find /c "Running" >nul 2>&1 &&(
        @set/a counter += 1 >nul 2>&1
        )||(
        echo RAN FOR %COUNTER% ITERATIONS!
        echo ERROR!
        echo FTPBOX IS NOT RUNNING ERROR!
        echo RESTARTING!
        C:\Windows\System32\schtasks.exe /run /TN "Start ftpbox"
        echo Re-starting FTBOX Monitor
        echo ======================
        @set counter = 0
        )
        @ping -n 2 0 >nul 2>&1
        goto :query

        Thank you, the others are excellent, Chinese simplified process does not support the garbled file name

        same here...temporary crashes...currently trying to run as administrator.

        Great prog!

        Yup, as everyone says.
        Crashes when some other program tried to write/delete synced files
        Crashes when trying to sync symlink'ed folder
        Crashed when I started a manual sync while scheduled sync was in process (probably that, I couldn't reproduce this crash)
        I think you should implement log and dump for unhandled exceptions, at least you'll have a chance to properly diagnose the crashes

        It crashes frequently and there is some issue in the integration of .Net framework with the application. Any solution to it?

        ************** JIT Debugging **************
        To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
        application or computer (machine.config) must have the
        jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
        The application must also be compiled with debugging
        enabled.

        For example:

        <configuration>
        <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
        </configuration>

        When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
        will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
        rather than be handled by this dialog box.
