Good point. The real world speeds are often quite different than the speed test results.

Re: (1) Upload time for large file (2) Disconnect for inactivity

Hey pcarter, Regarding the math, he's basically saying that the program is reporting the correct time estimate given the info. Broken down, that's: File size in megabytes multiplied by 1024 gives you your file size in kilobytes. Divide that by 17 (your upload speed in kilobytes/sec) and then by 3600...

Re: (1) Upload time for large file (2) Disconnect for inactivity

Two things that you may want to look into regarding the upload speed are: 1 - Your ISP's typical upload speeds. Depending on the provider, network congestion, etc., this may be your culprit. I know that my provider offers significantly slower upload speeds. 2 - The speed of the host itself. There wa...

Re: Why I'm going back to Filezilla 2 !!!!!

Although it was initially frustrating for me to switch from 2 to 3, and I even considered a switch back, I decided to stick it out. My reasons were: - This is a free, open source project. Reporting your issues (politely) so the developers can iron out the bugs is essential to the process. They're re...

Re: Transferring settings etc

You should just be able to use the Edit -> Export option, save the files somewhere safe, and then when you're up and running do a Edit -> Import.

Re: Long starting time (possibly with AMD64)

Fantastic! I tried the 2008-02-22 nightly build and tested it (via VPN) on my work network. Performance is MUCH better. The same folder that was taking 10-15 seconds to display the contents is now displaying everything comparable to 2.x and Explorer speeds. THANK YOU! I'll give it a good run through...

Thanks botg. I'll be trying that out as soon as it is posted.

I'll let you know how that works out!

Re: Long starting time (possibly with AMD64)

What about the server hosting the share? In my case I can rule out the server also. At work it is a NAS enclosure connected at gigabit speeds that works great for all other applications (including FileZilla 2.x). At home I share a drive off of my desktop PC (running XP) and, again, every other appl...

Re: Long starting time (possibly with AMD64)

Also, to help troubleshoot the problem (and to convince myself that I'm not going crazy), I re-installed an old version (2.2.31) that I found on my hard drive to compare performance. 2.2.31 loads the same folder on the same mapped drive almost instantly (comparable to how quickly it displays in Wind...

Re: Long starting time (possibly with AMD64)

Does your Antivirus/Malware software scan network drives? It would greatly add to the total access time, especially with 'On close scanning' activated. I checked my antivirus settings (AVG Free) and "on close scanning" was disabled already. Even when I completely disabled the resident sca...

Re: Long starting time (possibly with AMD64)

Mapped folders are always slower than local resources. Previous Windows OS tried to establish all network connections on startup. That may be no longer the case with recent ones. Network connections are now established on first access. If you have a few of them, the delay may be noticable. And, yes...

Re: Long starting time (possibly with AMD64)

I have noticed that version 3.x is much slower in general when browsing network folders, which often effects my startup time if the last folder I visited was on the network. That being said, I use AMD 64 bit processors at home and at work with similar results. Local listings of a local hard drive lo...
