    • 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.

      • 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!

                  Make the noop command optional in settings.

                        • 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.

                                  • 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.

                                      • Close the ftpbox session when the sync completes

                                        I am try to use FTPbox as a auto updater for my application.
                                        Would like to have my application starts right after the sync completes.

                                        This would be very useful.
                                        Any ideas to help me accomplish this will be very helpful.
                                        Thanks

                                        • can make a User interface like the ftp software "Fling"

                                          it will be good when the user interface can show what is on the server (but not in the browser) and maybe more accounts not only one
