Default FlashFXP for copying files local

Hi!

I would like to use FlashFXP the other way round.
I would like to copy files from a local harddisk to a local harddisk.

Background: FlashFXP has a cool queue management for copying files from local harddisk to ftp or from ftp to ftp. I can first enque all files/directories and then start the copy process.

I could use a local ftp server, but I don't want to install it just for copying some files.

Thanks
Hannes

That would be pretty nifty, I like this idea.

It would especially come in handy when transfering many/large files over a networked harddrive or slow internet shares, etc. This would be much nicer (and possibly faster?) than tieing up Windows Explorer, with the added benifit of exists rules, stats and graphing!

What do you say biggie? *sides with hannes*

i thought of this awhile ago too but then i decided that something like that is maybe kinda pointless? i wanted to be able to use network folders with flashfxp to do this though and for some reason flashfxp doesnt like network folders very much i think

FlashFXP should work fine with network folders, I do it all the time on my system. If you found some problems that you can reproduce please report them.

Hi MidKnight!

I think, there is some kind of misunderstanding.

I want to use FlashFXP for local file copy because of it's queue management.

I want to enque a lot of files and let flashfxp copy them one after another from harddrive to harddrive (no network attached).

bye
