  1. Custom Charset setting, separate for each account

    Hi,
    The Program is necessary and helpful. Thank you!
    Unfortunately we have to connect to numerous different ftp-servers, and some of them have troubles with non-English characters. FileZilla has a special option "Charset - Use custom charset" and if we use the option with value "windows-1251" these ftp-servers can be readable. Otherwise we get an error with transferring files with non-English filenames (with options "Charset - Autodetect" or "Charset - Force UTF-8").
    The FTPBox program has no charset option and has a problem with transferring files with non-English names from those ftp-servers. The case is applicable for individual site/account.

    • Comparsion window

      Maybe we could have a window in which we could compare local files with remote files and see which files and folders are synchronized with a green checkbox icon

        • Multiple uploads of unchanged files

          I have a folder with 125 files in it. When I start my app, all 125 files are uploaded to the ftp server.
          When I add another subfolder or another file, all the files are uploaded again. It takes about half an hour to upload all files. And every change I make just ends up in the back of the queue.
          How can I fix this?

          • Tray Icon

            Instead of the same icon, have some indication that a file sync is in progress. Similar to that of Google Drive.

                It works for few times after launch and then requires a restart. That's really annoying because I wrote hundreds lines of VBA and Java based on idea that local files can be synchronised with an ftp server. See my website
                http://www.boxvan.co.nf/about.html

                • Uploading files smart

                  Upload files will be in a more eficient way, for example track files that had been changed and news, also deleted to sync from local to ftp

                  • sync frequency

                    Liking the software so far, just one issue I am having is, it is automatically syncing whenever there is a change in the local folder even though i have it set to manual sync frequency.

                    Perhaps a progress bar for syncing would be nice aswell

                    • Delete or move files after upload

                      The only thing I am missing is an option to delete or move files to an backup folder after upload. I would use FTPbox to upload files that are being processed on the other server. Right now FTPbox would keep uploading the same files over and over.

                      • I get an error during initial sync.

                        The CheckUpdateItem function crashes with error: "Collection has changed..."

                        I've changed the code as a workaround to this:

                        List<ClientItem> lst = new List<ClientItem>();
                        foreach (var f in controller.Client.ListRecursive(item.CommonPath))
                        {
                        lst.Add(f);
                        }

                        // error on this line - foreach (var f in controller.Client.ListRecursive(item.CommonPath))
                        foreach (var f in lst)
                        {

                                If the user name and password changed in FTP server, now we have to delete all settings in FTPbox and add a new one instead of modification of current accoun. Please add an edit button to update.

                                  I am very difficult to understand the progress.
                                  It would be nice to have a progress to the Options screen.
                                  Progress simply must be able to view the log as it is.

                                  • Disable checking for updated version of FTPBox

                                    It would be nice to have the control to enable or disable the automatic checking for updated versions of the software. As it is, I'm unable to use it on a remote computer that I own because of the automatic popup window. I love the software except for this one small feature. Much appreciated!

                                      Hi, congratulations for the great job, your software is really amazing.

                                      I would like to suggest that the software send automatic emails when the sync is completed.

                                      • Automatically add a Library entry for Windows

                                        It's easy enough to do manually, but it would be nice to get a spot next to Pictures, Documents, etc. I have done so muyself and used the FTPBox icon from the executable to make it look good.
