Post Feature Request - Store sites online

I would like above feature to appear sometime in Flashfxp.

Idea: This could be achieved using Dropbox / Google Drive / user-defined FTP server or similar service.

Security: Of course cryptography would come in handy to secure the files. Non-advanced users wouldn't use this service, while advanced people that are using multiple device would be sure that their sites list is up to date. Advanced users also know how to protect their "valuable" files.

Thank you for your consideration.

Yes, it would be very useful!!
Especially if we could use a private ftp/sftp (especially for us who don't trust online storage media)

I was thinking this myself. Flashfxp has always been ahead of the curve however this feature imo is long overdue.

MxxCon, Are all your posts equally unhelpful ? I'm asking a question, that's all. Either you want to assist or not.

"unhelpful and rude." eh?
I guess you are too smug to realize that my question should've directed you to read the help file.
Let's see what the help file says:
Section "Reference", Topic "Command Line Switches", 2nd command line switch from the top.
Switch: -datafolder="<path>"
Description: Lets you select the working directory where your configurations and .dat files are loaded and stored.
Hmmm...Bigstar's hours and days of writing it are going to waste

Switch: -datafolder="<path>"

Can we set something like ftp://myftp.mydomain.com/ftp using a username / password?

All you needed to do was point me to this information in the first place. Obviously I didn't know it was there and didn't find it.

So finally, thank you for your assistance.

There are several ways to set a custom application data folder.

1. The preferred way is during installation.

During the installation of FlashFXP, on the "Setup Type" page uncheck "Individual Settings and Site Profiles" and select "custom" setup type, click the Next button, Select the desired components, click the Next button, Set the program installation location, click Next the button, Now you can set a custom program data folder location, you'll want to set this to the folder you are syncing via DropBox, Click the next button, Review your settings and click the Install button.

2. Via the command line

FlashFXP.exe -datafolder="<path>"
(anytime FlashFXP is run without this command switch the data folder reverts back to the one that was set during the installation.)

3. You can set a custom path for each individual data file via the registry.

Additional information regarding this method can be found in the help found under the section Power-user Settings > Custom data file locations. (online help file)

* These settings are configured via the windows registry and requires administrative permissions.
* These settings do not apply to the USB portable or U3 portable editions of FlashFXP.

On 32-bit versions of Windows the location is:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\FlashFXP\4

On 64-bit versions of Windows the location is:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\FlashFXP\4

Add a new String value (REG_SZ) with the name as (insert the file-name) and with a value set to the desired location of the data file.

You can use system environment-variable like %ALLUSERSPROFILE% or%APPDATA% in the value. i.e. %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\flashfxp\4\

No. These locations must be defined as a locally accessible path.
