#4906 closed Bug report (duplicate)

Default file action of overwrite if size/date different results in rename

Reported by: Kerry Owned by:

Operating system version: Winfows XP Pro


From menu: transfer -> default file exists action.
In uploads drop down select "Overwrite file if size differs or file is newer". Note that while I was documenting this problem I also discovered that the same thing happens when the default file action exists setting for upload is set for overwrite if different size or newer.

Upload file which does not meet this criteria. A dialog box occurs which asks to rename the file instead of skipping it.

Unfortunately the attached log does not show the fact of the rename dialog appearing and it being cancelled as it only shows that the file is being skipped. In fact the files being uploaded is the second time for them and should have been automatically skipped.

The attached log shows every file as being skipped but in fact the rename dialog was cancelled. Note that I aslso edited the log to remove server name/ip and user information
