#3604 closed Bug report

Large Directory List - Files in wrong folders

Reported by: varioj Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: Other
Keywords: Cc: varioj, Tim Kosse
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


Downloaded a large directory list comprising 2700 folders and 10000 files by just dragging the parent dir into the local pane.

The parent folder contains about 110 alphabetically ordered sub-folders (refer to as "individual site folder"), which themselves contain other sub folders and the actual files.

Unfortunately, at approx 25% into the queue filezilla has started putting the wrong files/folders in the wrong "individual site folder".

I have repeated the download with the same result.

I could not identify the reasons, and there appeared to be nothing special about the folders where this occurred. I did find empty files named '_vti_cnf.log' (I'm downloading from some webhosting) but these appeared even in folders that downloaded correctly. Tried setting a filter on this file then reprocessing the queue but it did not fix the download error.

What's interesting is that even after the errors start appearing, some correct files will appear in the correct folders but the folder it will have, for instance a file named aboutus.htm from the previous folder.

However, the errors are not confined to files that are of the same name across different folders. It is also moving uniquely named files onto the 'next' folder.

If you run the network configuration wizard, does the test at the end succeed? If the test fails, successful transfers cannot be guaranteed.

Ran the wizard with all default settings >> "Active mode test failed. FZ does not know external IP address"

Ran wizard again with manually entered IP (rtfm) >> "Connection with server was closed prematurely"

This means that some router or firewall sabotages the connection, and likely also causing the mix-up.

I obviously cannot give support to network related issues if your network environment isn't sane.
