#3356 closed Bug report

New files not downloaded if directory listing is cached

Reported by: alanh2 Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc: alanh2, Tim Kosse
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


When transferring a directory from the remote site to the local filesystem --

  1. Browse to the file in question, and sync it with your computer (upload or download, I don't care)
  2. Go up a level
  3. Update the file *in a different FTP client, on another PC, or with a web script, etc.*


  1. Transfer the folder with the file in question to your computer using the same FileZilla program, still open, that you used in step 1.
  2. Select "Overwrite if newer"
  3. Make it "apply to all ... downloads"
  4. OK
  5. Some files will be skipped instead of downloaded!

(The download may have to include a subfolder with the new file(s); I don't know.)

All folders and subdirectories being transferred should be re-LISTED instead of going on a cache. The cached lookup was probably 18 hours old in my case.

I've implemented a 30 minute cache timeout. Additional improvements will be made in future versions.
