OPTIONAL - Delete Temp files on Exit

When I first started using FileZilla, it would not always delete it's temp on exit, or disconnect. I am specifically referring fz3temp folder. Somewhere along the line, that "bug" was fixed. I would like to see that made optional.

I do work as a web-designer, and it is not uncommon for me to have several files open from a website as I work to make changes to code, or CSS files. On more then one occasion, I have had situations where FileZilla has closed, and when reopened, it clears the temp folder, and then NotePad++ informs me that the files no longer exist and would I like to close.

Perhaps, I'm crazy but for me and the way I work, it would make it easier if FileZilla let me worry about cleaning up the temp folders. All I am requesting, is to make "delete temp files on exit" a user-controlled option.

FileZilla deletes its temporary files on exit. This can fail if the files are locked by some other program. FileZilla retries deleting left-over files on subsequent starts.

If you want persistent local files, download them into a normal local directory and edit th local files instead.
