#4450 closed Bug report (rejected)

Directory Comparison feature not fully finctional.

Reported by: Thomas Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: directory comparison Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: Vista Home Premium, SP1


See attached screenshot.

In the image, it shows the popup for the directory comparison feature.

Yellow and Green both seem to function OK, although Green is a bit pointless, as the file that was transferred will always be reported as 'newer' than the original.

More importantly, the filesize difference, which is the far more critical indication (of an incomplete upload, for example), does not seem to show at all.

In the screenshot, note the file highlighted on the left. There is a size discrepancy between it and the corresponding file on the right, but there is no indication of this on the screen.

I did an upload the other day where I sent several hundred large files, and there were a number of them that uploaded incompletely. Was very time consuming to go through them item by item to spot the ones that were not complete.

Thanks! Great app overall.


Version of FileZilla is 3.2.4. I found the bug on an older version, and downloaded the latest one to see if it still exists, and it does.

There are two comparison modes, comparison by date/time and comparison by size. Check the menu or right-click the comparison button.
