Description (last modified by codesquid) (diff)

I have noticed this issue several times on the last 4-5
versions of filezilla (from 2.2.7something to the
current 2.2.8d).

When uploading via standard FTP (in passive mode) a
folder with nested folders in it and various files
(typically the folder contains web pages with images
and stylesheets nested inside subfolders), filezilla
seems to cross some of the file references.

My experience shows that this mostly happens on images:
i.e. filezilla will swap 2 images (i.e. will upload A
into B, and B into A). I haven't seen an occurence of
this on text files, but maybe it was just luck - the
images outnumber the .htm files 10 to 1, typically.
This only happens for a few files.

This happens on 2 different remote ftp servers (one on
solaris, the other on linux), therefore I am inclined
to suspect filezilla. Switching to another client
solves the problem.

Has anyone seen this problem before?

Same here. Using Windows XP as the client and a Windows
2000 Server as the ftp server. Files do get swapped. I am not
sure but 'using multiple connections' to transfer files might be
the culprit.

Dido! WinXP client with Serv-U ftp server. I have had
several text and binary files swapped. I will try turning off
multiple connections.

Text in Web documents that I upload is being swapped.
Windows XP client with FreeBSD server.

This bug report has been closed due to inactivity and has possibly
already been solved.

You can reopen this report if the issue still exists in the
latest version of FileZilla (Server).

This happens to me as well. Client runs on Windows XP, FTP Server is IIS 6.0 on Windows 2003 Server. It almost seems random. On a batch of a few hundred files, about 3 or 4 noticeable swaps occurred.

And which version of FileZilla would you be using?

I was using version 2.2.32. I just saw that there is a more recent version. This version doesn't exhibit any of the behaviors above. Sorry.
