today happened a not-very-funny thing: I've just tried to update my site
by adding a patch (some folder and some files to overwrite on my site's
Why not use ftp feature of gnomecommander? So, I've connected to my ftp,
selecting my files and press F5, just as I did with windows commander.

Well, after done that, I've lost months of work: every files under
directories in my patch was deleted BEFORE uploading. While uploading,
of course, only new files was uploaded.

Result is: now on my site there is ONLY the patch. All other files was
deleted. Of course I have a backup but I've uploaded a lot of MBytes in
several months, and now I need to restore them all.

I'm using different OSs and SWs since more than ten years, and I've
never seen a software doing a thing like this, even without a warning!

At now, I'm spending more than 8 hours to restore all damages made by
gmcd. And I still didn't finished.

This is my feedback for this product. My first and last one. I hope this
will be useful for the dev (change FTP system) and for users (don't use
gcmd FTP until system will be changed).
