download directory

It would be nice if we were able to download a directory via the web client instead of just the files within the directory.

Thanks

Good idea!
But I think it is hard to realize without ActiveX component or Java component.

Thanks for your suggestion.

May be the server can compress directory to a zip file. You can download it first, then unzip it!

I'd be ok with that as long as the compression time didn't take too long. I know that's dependent on many factors but perhaps just in store mode with no compression to speed things up. Or better yet let the compression level be selectable via the Admin account.

We've just implemented Wing FTP server and thus far it has performed very well. However, the lack of the ability to download the entire folder/directory and automatically include it's sub-contents is painful, especially since we've migrated from another FTP server which supported this feature and our older files are not zipped into single downloads.

Cheers
