Hidden file support for ftp

Postby EeOe » Thu Oct 27, 2011 7:52 pm

Hello

I have noticed that the ftp synchronize doesn't show "hidden" files or folder (any file or folder beginning with ".") on the server. Some other ftp clients I have used does show the hidden files and I would really like to see Synchronize It! to support them too.

I don't know the specifics how the hidden files work with ftp, but by comparing the ftp logs of Synchronize It! and WinSCP, I noticed that WinSCP uses slightly different command (LIST -a) when requesting the file list.

Synchronize It!: LIST

Code: Select all

I hope this helps if you decide to add the "hidden" files support for Synchronize It! :)

I think the same, hidden files support would be great.
