Change dir while file transfer in proggress

#1 Post by Symanz » 2021-02-06 23:49

Hello, not sure when it happened, but yesterday I noticed that If I have entered into a dir and started downloading the file, I cannot exit the directory and browse other directories until the file download is in process. Is there a way to fix this?
Thank you!

Do you have restricted the number of connections to 1 in the Site Manager?

Hello, thank you for the help, you were right, somehow I had one connection.

Reducing connections to 1 will have the mentioned side-effect and more. Once the transfer is running, the only connection is occupied and you are effectively stuck until the transfer finishes.
