The overwrite option needs another option.

The "overwrite if newer" seems to do the job for me
the most time but files like "index.shtml" can be
found in many places, thus may overwrite different
ones if wrong folder is chosen.

Like in CuteFTP, "overwrite if upload" option is very
nice to have.

Keep up the good job :)

i agree. something like "apply this rule only to current transfer
in queue" option for overwriting files would be nice

I would like to see this feature something like this:
Downloading (Uploading):

  • smaller: ask, owerwrite, resume, skip, rename
  • same: ask, owerwrite, skip, rename
  • larger: ask, owerwrite, skip, rename

I would prefer a "try and make the decision for me" option
in the preferences that does the following when your a
target (T) already exists for a source (S) you're trying to ftp:

if S.size = T.size and is the same as then


elseif S.size > T.size or is later than then
