3.35.1 bug: deleting file on server doesn't really refresh the directory content

#1 Post by flow » 2018-08-04 12:21

Load a server directory in FileZilla that contains at least one file (file xy)
Copy or move another file there without using FileZilla (file zzz)
Delete file xy

While it now looks as if FileZilla does refresh the view, file zzz does not become visible. Only a manual use of F5 reveals what's really there.

It works correctly when you do the same with a local directory, so it would be cool to get the server side fixed. Thanks! :D

Not a bug, this is intentional.

Then I kindly request an option to get the same behavior for local and remote files. 8)

Since refreshing the remote file list is slow by virtue of being remote, the local file list would need to be made slow as well.

Hmm..... I don't understand why "the local file list would need to be made slow as well".

Most of the time I use my NAS on the local side, and the remote list refreshes faster than the NAS (and about as quickly as C:)

Well - you wanted the same behavior for both sides, didn't you? Remote locations are usually magnitudes slower than the local lists.
Please note that having a NAS on the local side is considered cheating if you didn't install FileZilla directly on the NAS. Network shares are slow by design.

Maybe we talk at cross purposes here... I still don't understand why "the local file list would need to be made slow as well" - why not have "auto-refresh the server side after deleting" as an option and then it refreshes as quickly as it does, even if it's a bit slower than the local files?

I don't experience the "magnitudes slower" here - the server side takes only about twice as long to refresh as the C: SSD. And since it's considered cheating I'll try not to mention the NAS again. ;-)

Refreshing the remote file list can take several minutes. It is not feasible to unconditionally refresh it after every action.

I see... So if such servers exist, "auto-refresh the server side after deleting" needs to be an option.
