Would it be possible to implement a setting that preserves attributes while copying files? This would be when copying site-to-site (i.e., unix-to-unix, through SFTP or FXP), since I understand that copying attribs win-to-*ftp doesn't make much sense... I also understand that this requires issuing a separate command for each file, but that's one of those boring things that computers are better than humans at...
It seems this request has come up before
, but since 12 years now passed and (at least for me) sftp-to-sftp transfers have become quite important, I was hoping you guys could reconsider whether this feature could be implemented. And FlashFXP is supposed to be the authority
in site-to-site transfers, isn't it?
Jokes aside, to me this feature is particularly important when I'm on Windows (hence when I'm using FlashFXP) because I don't want to have to tar-untar things just to transfer them accurately. Sure, I could use scp on one of the two linux machines, but very often I either don't have a clear network link between the two of them, or one of the two (or both...) are VMs isolated from the world/each other.
Thanks so much for your help and giving me the chance to refer to a 12yo thread! (I.e., thanks for working on FlashFXP for all this time!
