Default Ability To Export File Listing From "FTP File Search"

One feature that I would really appreciate having in FlashFXP is the ability to export a file listing of the entire FTP site. When I use "Tools --> Find Files on FTP Server" and in the "Named" field use the wildcards *.*, FlashFXP does a great job listing all the files including the directory and filesize. I would love to be able to export this information to a text file.

Thanks for your help!

What should the exported file listing look like?

First of all, I've found a way of almost doing what I need. If you execute the LIST -aR command at the root directory, all the files and folders are listed. Use "Directory --> Copy Directory to Clipboard". Then you can use a text editor to remove the information that you don't need.

Here's an example of what this method returns:

./Directory:
-rw-r--r-- 1 user user 15450928 Feb 10 18:48 test.exe
-rw-r--r-- 1 user user 45355876 Feb 24 19:50 test2.exe

It would be nice if FlashFXP would allow the user to select what to include. Example:

./Directory
test.exe 15.4MB Feb 10 18:48
test2.exe 45.3MB Feb 24 19:50

Really, any type of format would be fine. Just, just allow the user to choose what to include in the export.

Thanks again,

Timothy

Oh I see, I thought you wanted some sort of exported list that could be imported some place else. Like a CSV file.

"Copy Directory to Clipboard" is a raw listing provided by the ftp server, It's main purprose is to provide a means of seeing the raw listing in case of incompatiblies, allowing the user to submit the listing to us for support. If it were modified it would defeat the purpose.
