Description

hi,
it would be nice than when updating a folder with multiple files,
filezilla would first upload any not already existing files ,
and then overwrite already existing files at the end.
I got the feeling that filezilla, just update files in "order".
Sorry if I'm mistaken. I think it should give priority to newly added files. By the way, when you overwrite a folder with an other, Win 7 does this: it copy without asking new files, and only at the end, ask if you want to overwrite already existing files.

cheers

Actually, W7 does it a bit differently than you assumed. It too copies the files in order, but the difference is that after it prompts your for action (Copy and Replace, Don't Copy...) rather than waiting for you to choose, another thread keeps working in the background examining other files you chose to copy, and if it runs into some that can be copied clean without requiring your input it copies them.
