Transfer

 

   Transfer Mode (default)

ASCII
This mode is intended when transferring plain text files. Depending on the server OS the text format may be converted to the appropriate format.

Binary
This mode is intended when transferring files where you want an exact copy of the file.

Auto
This mode will use the file patterns defined by (Filters > ASCII) to determine which files should be transferred in ASCII mode, all other transfers will be done in binary mode.

     Use smart mode handling when auto is selected
When checked, FlashFXP will only set the file transfer mode  (ASCII or Binary) when the type of file being transferred changes. This reduces the number of commands sent to the server. Some old legacy FTP servers may not be compatible with this feature.
