File corruption problem - Feature request

Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client

It happens that sometimes, when the internet connection is bad, that the downloaded file is corrupted. It seems allright, but when you check it, you discover that there is some troubles in it. So it will be very useful to have a control device, like MD5 or SHA256, included into FileZilla Client to be sure that the transfer is OK. As this process is time consuming, it could be optional.

Best regards,

If you seek data integrity, avoid using insecure plain FTP.

Make sure to use FTP over TLS (FTPS) or the SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP), both are immune to data corruption due to bad network connectivity.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
