Description

Queued a whole bunch of files, basically to backup the entire site to harddisk.

Several occasions, I got the "Target file already exist" error as in the screenshot included.

I'm downloading
/httpdocs/cn/divisions/seals/arrow/01arrow.htm

to c:\random.com\httpdocs\cn\divisions\seals\arrow\01arrow.htm

And I get a pop-up that target file exists... but it's displays:
Source file: /httpdocs/cn/divisions/seals/arrow01arrow.htm

There's a "/" missing in the Source file.

But when I choose the Overwrite action. The correct file is downloaded onto the harddisk.

This prompt shouldn't be popping up in the first place anyway, since this is a download to a fresh directory. There shouldn't be an existing file in the target location.

1) .htm files are ASCII files, ASCII transfers cannot be resumed due to line-ending conversions. Thus if a transfer gets interrupted for some reason (e.g. a random disconnect), FileZilla cannot continue on its own, it has to ask user for confirmation to overwrite files. Without the confirmation dialog, it could happen for FileZilla to download the same file over and over again indefinitely.

2) The missing slash has been fixed in the source repository already.
