#3612 closed Bug report

Edit doesn't upload changed files.

Filezilla client

View/Edit correctly downloads the file and launches it in the editor set (in this case Notepad.exe) - but when changes are made, saved and the editor exited, nothing else happens.

With my previous version (2.x), the upload would usually kick in when the editor closed.

When using View/Edit on the same file again (after it didn't upload) I'm warned that the file is already being edited, but regardless of what I choose (overwrite or cancel) no upload happens. I get the same warnings about edited/not uploaded files on app exit.

When you save the file in your editor, the file modification time changes. FileZilla should notice this and will ask you what to do.

Please also try the most recent nightly build from

I've figured out the problem. I had enabled Transfer->'preserve timestamps on transferred files'. The file is sometimes modified on the server, and its clock time seems to be 1hr ahead of mine, so the file had a modification date that was slightly in the future. If I disable the setting it works.

So I guess Filezilla only triggers uploads when [current stamp] > [original stamp], maybe it should be != ?
