Please will you create a confirmation screen for local deletions. I have hit the delete key by accident on several occasions and deleted the very files that I wanted to upload!
When you have selected files on the remote site and try to delete them a confirmation is required but no such confirmation is required on the local site - they are gone!

Local deletion is done using the Windows Shell subsystem. Check your Windows settings, they must be set to not ask for confirmation.

Hi - thanks for your reply. The default UAC setting is 'Notify me only when apps try to make changes to my computer'. I have changed this to 'Always notify me' but it makes no difference to the behaviour of Filezilla (which is otherwise a great tool!). I assume I am looking at the wrong Windows setting. Can you suggest which setting I need to change?
