#10650 closed Bug report (wontfix)

Alphabetical order of files is not honored when queuing

Description

When adding a dirtree to the download queue, filezilla does not honor the alpha order of the file names when I believe that it should or at least offer an option to do so.

One can reproduce this very easily:
On the server from which to download, do:

mkdir test
cd test
for i in 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9; do touch $i; done

Now connect to the server with filezilla and drag the "test" folder into the download queue and begin downloading. The order is not:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9

For me, the order was:
6
1
2
4
8
5
3
9
7

This is intentional, FileZilla does not specify an order in which files are transferred. This allows for most efficient processing of files.

I agree... FlashFXP does not mix up file-order when downloading folders.
Why does FileZilla?
I am still waiting for this issue to be fixed after YEARS!
