    • iOS Support

      As an iPhone/iPad user, I'd love to see an FTPbox app for iOS. I'm hanging onto my Dropbox account because there are certain things I just need quick access to while on the go. Thanks!

        • 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:

          • Provide hyperlink to newly synced file

            The best part of Dropbox that I'm finding right now, is the new dialogue that pops up, providing me with the ability to instantly click on any of the recent files, and to copy its corresponding hyperlink to my clipboard.

            The reason I like FTPBox, is that it's easy to provide a novice with a single folder that they can post files to for sharing over the internet. The problem I see them facing though, is that they have no idea how to share a link to that specific file. This would simplify it for them.

            • Upload/download ultiple files at same time

              Hi,

              it would be great if there was option to set how many files you want to upload/download at same time, as now, uploading a folder which has 30MB took me more than hour, but with FileZilla it was all done in less than a minute with ONLY 2 concurrent transfers allowed in it.

              Also, when you are uploading/downloading file it looks like this (numbers are seconds):

              1
              File starts uploading
              2
              File is uploaded
              3
              4
              New file starts uploading
              5
              File is uploaded
              6
              7
              etc...

              FileZilla is about 20x faster.

              • Sync Scheduler

                So sync can happen at night or while at work - if bandwith usage has a limit Users can still have the automated sync but only off peak hours

                • 100% only when the synchronization is completed

                  If I sync one big file and many small files, the taskbar icon says i have synced 100%. Thats wrong. 100% is it first, when i completed all file uploads.
                  Can you show how many files are synced?
                  E.g. 45/50 files ~95%

                  • problem in ftpbox, updating automatically at set at 10 seconds

                    Hello! I want to draw your attention to something I noticed as a problem in ftpbox ... I change the synchronization to be done not manually, but at a certain point and interval seconds of this interval (eg 300), the next time the program she does not remember this new option and start updating automatically at set at 10 seconds ... I guess it will be easily removed ... Thank you for making this program for us! To me personally is very useful if you improve, I would be grateful sincerity ... to e-mail you sent and Bulgarian translation ...…

                    • Next update starts a specified time after previous updates _finishes_

                      Example: New sync job set for each 30 seconds fixed time. If file transfer needs longer, FTPBox seems to start another sync job and crashes.

                      To make it more convenient, one should be able to set 30 seconds + time needed for file transfer.

                      • Clean incomplete files

                        Thanks for this program! I'm just starting to try it out.

                        I noticed that when a large file was copying (from a Windows client), on the FTP side it created:
                        ~large_file.zip

                        I thought that was a good idea to add the tilde. That gives me a way to identify incomplete files. As a test, I exited FTPbox (right-click, Exit). It left the incomplete file but also created "large_file.zip" with the finished size.

                        I then removed large_file.zip on the client side.

                        When I restarted FTPbox, it did not remove either the temporary file or the "complete" file (though it must have…

                          Hi,

                          I copied a directory hierarchy into my local folder. FTPBox starts synchronizing but no files were copied since no sub-directories are created on the remote server.

                                    Hi since there is no native osx version, is possible to run this app through wine?

                                    • Windows client crashing on Windows 8.1 (64bit) when file is in use

                                      Hi,
                                      when I am working on an already existing file which is saved in the ftpbox folder, the client always crashes when he tries to sync the file. I guess this happens because the file is still in use then.

                                      In addtion to that, there is no crash report. The programm just "closes" itself.

                                      Regards,

                                      Lukas

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