            • 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

                • Add better notifications when transfers complete

                  The system tray popup is only useful if I'm sitting at my computer when a file finishes transferring, and it wouldn't be useful at all if this program was being used on a headless server. It would be great if this could use something like Pushbullet or Notify My Android to send notifications to other devices.

                  • It would be nice if the folder/file icon change if the file is up-to-date (At least in windows)

                    If FTPbox will run as a service, and the sync-process is automatic, it would be nice if the icon of a file/folder change if the file/folder is up-to-date (like google drive does with a green check).

                    P.S: Great program! I use it now to replace dropbox and google drive since in my work-place both services are blocked. FTPbox works great!

                    • Canceling adding new FTP profile exits FTPbox

                      When I cancel adding a new profile it quits FTPbox, well this shouldn't happen, especially not while it is syncs.

                      • Also support WebDav?

                        There's really no FTPBox-like alternative for WebDav. Previously, the only option was Pincette's davbox but it has gone fully commercial.

                        An uncomplicated C# WebDav client-only library, just in case it's of any help, is at: https://github.com/kvdb/WebDAVClient

                        • 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!

                                • Prompt before deletion.

                                  I am afraid that by accident I delete the local file and the program will automatically delete the backup. You could add some confirmation before deleting files.

                                  • 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.

                                    Cyril.

                                    • Log out from webinterface

                                      It would be nice if i could log out from my webinterface, after i create a password for my webinterface and later on I re-enter the url. I can acces the folder without entering my password. But can't find a logout, or im not seeing it.

                                        • en/decrypt files on clients so untrusted cloud storage can be used

                                          Do you trust any cloud provider? Even if you do you like your private data to remain just that. While syncing to any external party privacy should remain with your synced local devices.
