I was downloading a bunch of files - circa 35,000 totaling about 45 GB - from the Census Bureau to another computer on my network. Then it occurred to me - from the warning messages I was seeing - after about 18,000 files and 25 GB were downloaded that the computer I was targeting to transfer to does not have enough space. My current computer has 1.7 terabytes of space available so I was going to change the downloads to a directory here.
However, there is no way I can get Filezilla to unlock the queue settings to allow me to tell it to change the target destination. It's locked and unchangeable by any method I can figure out. Stopping downloads, then changing the target directory does not change queued files, they are still locked into the original network directory. I found where the supposed queue file is ( C:\documents and settings\paul\application data\filezilla\queue.xml ) but apparently that's now a dummy file, it contains nothing but a single XML entry of no significance.
Apparently instead of staying with a fixable text file for the queue, or allowing the queue target to change by changing the download directory, the information is now stored, locked, in an SQL file in the above directory and cannot be changed once set.
I can't simply shut down filezilla, use a text editor to change an XML file, or do anything to fix the problem except flush the queue and lose all the file names. As it still has about 27,000 files left, this is unacceptable.
How can I change the destination of queued files to download?
