Since last 3 versions of FileZilla i have noticed this bug which can be reproduced easily and with consistency
- In your local machine. Select multiple folders that have sub folders upto 3 levels and have files in them
- Upload them in remote server using FileZilla.
- Once the cycle is finished successfully check if all files have transferred.
In FileZilla all files will show under "Successfully Transferred" tab. But on server some files will still be missing randomly.
We found this out while releasing .net based application on google cloud server and since last 3 versions this bug appeared, .net application crashed randomly and upon checking we found some files were missing, so i checked in detail - i had the files in local folder, but they were missing in remote folder.
We even tried repeating the upload cycle multiple times and each time some missing files would get uploaded but still some files remained.
To overcome this issue now we are zipping the entire folder and uploading them - but then this approach requires access to terminal to complete the release process.
