Description

ASCII and Auto mode can lead to data corruption as it did for me right now (I had an "Auto"). If somebody will ever need ASCII mode he could always turn it on in their settings. Binary file transfer mode must be a default file transfer mode. This small improvement can dramatically increase reliability of the whole program.

Just to add some details: troubles have been caused by a php files that are suggested (as I suppose) to be a text files but in fact were an ioncube compiled binaries and were copied in ASCII mode but should have been copied as a binary files. But I'd not to blame auto mode for wrong type detection. It's an impossible task, every file must be treated as a binary because it can have a reason to be binary. It could even have a reason to look like a text file but to be a binary at the same time, if it's involved in a some sort of cryptography.
