#2924 new Feature request

Deleting several directories simultaniously

This is at the same time an improvement request and a bug. Right now, when you delete one directory, it is not possible to delete another until the first deletion is done.

It could be nice to be able to delete several directories at the same time from the directory tree window... And that the directory tree window does not follow the deletion during the time it occurs.

You can select more than one directory and then delete all selected ones. They will be deleted one after another. FileZilla uses only one control connection to the FTP server, so there is no (easy) way to do simultanious deletes. Each directory has to be listed recursively in order to fetch the names of files and further (sub-)directories for deletion.

Agreed, but it is not possible to select directories that are not in the same location. Say I have the following directory tree:


and I want to delete /a/temp and /b/temp . There is no way for me to select at the same time /a/temp and /b/temp since they are not in the same root directory...
