- A files/folders synchronization tool between the client and the server will be welcome. It will help to save time and bandwith.
This tool may be added to the file transfer mode.

Hi Genie

This is a bit tricky given that Dropbox or already exist that do the sync task perfectly. The File Transfer mode was primarily intended for occasional file transfers, not as a full-fledged sync tool, as this is much better done by specialized software or cloud services. But we'll see what we can do.

+1 on this. For the meantime, any recommendation for a software that can do this?

I was also looking for an easy way to do this.

An alternative to a file sync tool would be to map a remote folder to a local drive. Then I could use my own favourite sync tools.
