I appreciate there would be considerable overhead in continually refreshing the display of the remote system so I’m not asking for that. However, I think it would be beneficial to automatically refresh the details of any files(s) about to be uploaded. Allow me to explain.
I upload FRED.TXT to a Linux server. On that server I discover a problem so I delete FRED.TXT from the remote system. Having locally modified FRED.TXT I attempt to upload the revised file, which produces a warning: “Target file already exists” even though it doesn’t.
Of course, if I had clicked the icon for “Refresh the file and folder lists” this message would not appear.
My question is as follows: can FileZilla automatically check to see if FRED.TXT still exists on the remote system?
