#8738 new Feature request

Immediately listing new file in client window

When I edit a file on my computer, which is listed in the client window and "save as" under a new file name, the new file does not show up in the listing. Currently I have to move up the directory tree and back down to the original directory for the new file to show up in the listing. It sure would be nice if creation of the new file would trigger an immediate update in the directory listing.

Thanks for what you do.

You can simply hit F5 or use "View -> Refresh" from the menubar.

For Linux, inotify or its kind could be used to achieve this, no idea about Windows. However, automatically updating directories might significantly slow down FileZilla, if the directory is very large or if directory listing is very slow because the local directory actually is a mapped remote directory (network drive for example).

And finally, the server side does not update automatically either, so if the user expects a change, he should refresh the view manually.
