FEATURE REQUEST: Duplicate file feature

Reported by: David Adams Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: duplicate Cc:
Component version: 3.51.0 Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: 2004


I often use FileZilla to modify my website files, before I do I always backup the file before modifying. Currently I do this by:

(1) Transfer the file locally
(2) Rename the remote file xxxx.bak
(3) Modify the local file
(4) Upload the local file

It would be so much easier if I could just duplicate the remote file like you can in Windows File Manager. Even if I just end up with a 'Copy of xxx' this would make things easier but if you want to knock the ball out of the park, then a 'Duplicate and edit' feature would be such a timesaver.

Use case would be:

(a) Right click file, choose 'Duplicate and edit'
(b) Filezilla renames existing file xxx.bak
(c) FileZilla copies renamed file as original filename
(d) Filezilla opens new file for edit e.g. in Notepad++

Then all I have to do is make my edit, click save (the normal 'This file has changed...' dialogue would then re-upload the modified file as normal.
