Force hidden files option does not work in windows XP

Operating system version: XP Pro SP3


Hello There,

Using windows XP pro SP3
Filezilla version:

The server > force showing hidden files does not work properly for me (no files showing). I've tested using a linux version and everythings is fine there. Actually the windows version I have sends "226-Options: -l" to the server where it should send "226-Options: -a -l".

Thank you for looking into this.

Why did you mark this as blocker? It's not a problem that makes FileZilla totally unusable for the majority of users.

The "force showing hidden files" option is an ugly workaround for broken servers. It will get removed in a future version. A proper server does not hide any files, no matter what.

Please contact the server administrator so that he can upgrade to a proper server.
