Specify How to Handle Existing Files

You can set a transfer mode to specify how the FTP Client should handle transfer when a file with the same name already exists. The current transfer mode is indicated on the status bar.

To specify how to handle existing files

  1. On the Tools menu, point to If File Exists
  2. Click a new transfer mode.

Note: In some circumstances, this setting is ignored. The value you specify using the If File Exists command applies only to transfers within the FTP Client. If you use drag-and-drop to transfer a file from a client display pane to your desktop or an open Windows Explorer window, Windows will always display a Confirm File Replace dialog box whenever a file exists, regardless of the FTP Client configuration. To take advantage of the currently configured option, always use Reflection panes for drag-and-drop transfers.
