#2073 closed Feature request

"Always Use" when file exists behavior

Reported by: anonymous Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: Other
Keywords: Cc: Eirik, sapience, Tim Kosse
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


If I copy files from a local dir to an ftp dir, that
already exists , I get the prompt "File Already Exists"
and get several options.

If I choose the option "Always Use Action when a file
already exists", this has the effect that my choice not
only applies to all the other files i choose to copy in
the current operation, but also all subsequent
copy-operations I initiate during the same connection.

Personally, I would like the "Always" to only apply to
the current operation and it's files. But if it is to
be remembered for future copy-operations should it not
also be remembered across connections?

Perhaps two checkboxes:
[] Use this action for all files in this operation
[] Always use this action

Or a radio-group
(*) Use this action for this file only
( ) Use this action for all files in this operation
( ) Always use this action

More of a feature request than a bug - moved.

Yes, this is a very useful feature. Sometimes, I get the
prompt but I forgot to answer it as it gets hidden under so
many windows, it would be nice to have it accept the first
answer for all items in the queue.

This feature has been implemented. Please update to the most
recent version of FileZilla.
