#3352 closed Bug report

wait for directory scan to end before processing queue

First of all apologize for my English uncommon. :D


In the version 3 of the FileZilla, when the client scans all folders to add files to the queue waiting for transfer.

In version 2, it was possible to stop the transfer, and that the programme should continue exploring the folders and files only add to the queue.

But in the version 3 is not possible, if you have to stop transferring queue, FileZilla continues to transfer files added after being told to stop transferring queue.

I think we should be able to stop completely, as my hosting crashes why do too many things at the same time.

And I have to start exploring folders why then do not know that point has left explore when blockade.

I hope to have explained correctly.

Which version of FileZilla 3 are you using and (even though this might not be relevant for the problem) on which platform (Microsoft Windows, Unix (which), MacOS X).

So the problem you have is as follows:
You first add a directory to the queue. This takes a long time, maybe because it is a large directory. And while FileZilla is adding the files to the queue, you stopped the queue but FileZilla kept adding files to it?

Can you please try to explain what you did, what actually happened and what you expected?

Thanks for reply.

I'm using FileZilla on Windows XP Pro.

Well, I try to explain better.
I use a system for my site, which contains 8000 or more files, and are divided into many differents folders.

When I want to make a backup, is currently exploring all the folders in search of the files.
And while the FileZilla scans folders, start transferring files already found earlier.

The issue is that I think that until we finish exploring all folders, it should be able to suspend the transfer of files.

And now this is not currently possible.

I hope you now understand that I mean.
Thanks beforhand.

So the issue is that FileZilla starts to transfer the files as soon as it added them, without waiting for the recursive directory scan (the directory you added to the queue) to be finished?

There are two ways to add a directory to the queue:

1) You can right click on the directory and select "download". This will add the directory to the queue and while doing that, process the queue already. This most likely is what you do.

2) You can right click in the directory and select "add to queue". This will add the directory to the queue, but it won't process the queue. Once the whole directory is added, you have to use the "process queue" button in toolbar (or the menu in queue pane) to start queue processing.

Is your issue solved by using the second way?
