#4957 accepted Feature request

Configuarble local directories

Reported by: Dave Adamson Owned by: Xishi Pan
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Temp directory Cc: xishipan@…
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: Windows XP SP-2

Description

Please allow the FileZilla's temporary directory (C:\Temp\fz3temp-1) to be configurable. We work with confidential files and I would like these temporary files to be stored on an encrypted local disk.

I know these files are normally deleted at the end of a session, but there is a possibility the files could be left unencrypted if the program or computer crashed unexpectedly.

Also, I am not sure if the Temp files are wiped securely from c:\temp when they are deleted normally.

Thanks!

Note that on Windows the default temporary directory is inside your user's profile directory. If it's in c:\temp then there's something wrong with your system imho.
