There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Folder/File Permissions

    Have the ability to put new files into a folder to share with other users, but if another user deletes the file from their synced folder, it does not remove it from the FTP server or your own folder.

    An example would be if I wanted to share pictures or videos with others and one of the users either deletes or moves the video out of the synced folder, it deletes it from the FTP server and my folder.

              • Add support for Active transfers

                I cannot connect to a site that only supports 'Active' transfer mode. There seems to be no way to manually set this and the application does not automatically set this type as needed. Adding this site also locks up the program causes a fatal error.

                                      Should be able to delete file from remote server after sync and also save a backup copy

                                      • Preserve timestamps

                                        FTPbox is a very useful program, but it is seriously messing up the timestamps of my files. Sometimes it will set an entire directory to the same time. When a file is updated from one computer to another, the timestamp should be the time the file was changed on the source computer, not the time of the update. Times should never be changed unless the file has actually changed.
