FTP and SFTP plugins unloaded by Android

Post by *akem3210 »

Hey,
I have a problem on Android 10 with the FTP and SFTP plugins, if i start a copy of files, after few minutes i
get the message:
"Error: the ftp plugin was unloaded by Android..."
and the transfer copy is broken ofc,
so i cannot use theses plugins.
Note that i use other TC plugins:
LAN(smb), Google-drive and MS-oneDrive,
and they work just fine.
I tried to look in Android setting if i could add them to the list of program that should not be closed by the OS, it's called 'DuraSpeed' on my Oukitel phone, but since they are plugins and not real apps, they are not listed,
i also looked in the developer options but didn't find anything interesting.
Thanks.

Have you tried to add Total Commander to that list?

They are actually real apps! They should be listed unter Totalcmd-appname, e.g. Totalcmd-LAN.

Actually, plugins don't use one naming convention when listed by Google Play:
  • FTP Plugin for Total Commander
  • LAN plugin for Total Commander
  • Plugin: Drive for Totalcmd
  • SFTPplugin for Total Commander
  • Totalcmd Plugin for OneDrive
  • Totaldrip - Plugin for Total Commander
  • WebDAV plugin-Total Commander
  • WiFi/WLAN Plugin for Totalcmd
Could you rename them, please?
Currently it's not easy to find all of them on the list of installed apps.
What is more, I suspect that many users don't know how to search apps by publisher in Google Play store.

I meant the names in the list of installed apps. They are what the APK indicates. The names in the store are descriptions defined in the store.

I know it, but why should I search for different names?
From Android users' point of view different app names are a mess which should be cleaned up, but no one cares - neither developers nor translators. For example, FBReader and its plugins in Google Play store start with"FBReader" in name, but FBReader Bookshelf is seen as "Regały FBReader" on the list of installed apps.

How many apps have you installed on your Android devices - more than 100, 200?
Now imagine you are supposed to work with the following apps: Słowo Microsoftu, Przewyższać Microsoft, Dostęp Microsoftu ;-)
It's only half-a-joke. In real there was MS Write app translated to Polish as Zapisz.
