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).

Hi Massimiliano,

I am really sorry for the problems that this bug has lead to for you. On the other hand you are the first person to report this bug so I do not in any way feel responsible for neglecting it or something like that. Bugs do happen in all software development and if no one reports them and I dont find them myself, how am I
supposed to know about them?

I can reproduce the problem here though, so it will be fixed in the next version.

Thanks for reporting the problem
