Downloading into a directory synced with Dropbox causes queuing to fail and Filezilla to hang
|Operating system type:
|Operating system version:
My local FTP directory for all of my websites syncs to my other computers via Dropbox Pro.
In the current version of Filezilla when you queue a large directory/entire site to download, and Dropbox begins to upload this causes Filzilla to hang, spring back to life, hang again and so on. The problem seems related to dynamically adding files to the queue; as soon as queuing is done the problems end. If the directory contains a very large number of <1k files this causes Filezilla to crash outright. Quitting Dropbox solves the problem.
I've used Fz for years with this setup, it has not previously caused any problems.
