"Dropping" a file on an area next to a folder

When uploading a file, I drag it from the local folder into the upload folder. If I drop it in a space in the same row as a subfolder in the remote site window, the file goes into that subfolder.

I believe it should go in the current folder as putting it in the subfolder has undesirable consequences - uploading to a folder with lots of subfolders and maybe one file becomes tricky, and its easy to upload files to random subfolders without realising.

Drop onto a filename or below the last file or use the directory tree.

Thanks for this...

I'm not obliged to have the directory tree open. If not, then I have a potentially tiny space in which to drop my file and no way round it.

As it is I keep having to scroll around avoiding folders in order to find a place to drop files.

I'm pretty familiar with the interface now, but still I keep accidentally moving files to the wrong folder and not knowing where I've put them - I think that files should only go into subfolders when you drop on the folder icon or its name. Its safer and more intuitive that way.
