interesting behavior with upload in background (ftp)

Post by *nirmelamoud » 2019-01-14, 00:28 UTC

not sure if this is on purpose or not, but its interesting

I have two FTP sites open (probably can be done with one as well)

I mark few folders (probably files will work as well) and do copy from my local disk to the ftp site number 1 , when the dialog open I click F2 (in the queue in the background) the marking of the folders disappear (on the local disk)

I switch to the other ftp, and mark again the list of folders I want to upload (keep both ftp servers in sync) , click copy, when the dialog open
I click F2, now the red marking does not disappear, so if I want to copy them to a third place I can without marking again


It happens, I think because the queue copy dialog is still open...

what do you say ?

Indeed these are two different operations - one is creating a new background dialog with the selected files, and one is adding selected files to an existing background operation. You should still be able to restore the last selection with the "/" key on the numeric keypad.

in my mind, they need to behave the same (from the user perspective both are the same, adding list of files to be uploaded in the background )
I do not know which behavior is better (drop the marks or leave them) - probably drop them, as you said it could be reconstructed
