Hmmm... maybe. But I would think if Ztree has both the files logged in memory, it could do a pre-check before ever requesting the file be copied. I doubt the copy begins before Ztree requests it. I dunno - good questions! No answers! ;)

Have you also noticed how Ztree copies over remote files without an overrite prompt? This may also be a good "option" for Ztree to check its "memory" of logged files before actually doing any filesystem requests. Or even an option to actually log the destination directory, if it's not already, and then do the memory check before the copy. Then again, maybe that's just overkill.

Otherwise known as SuperFTP. Go to and download it. It lets you open to remote sites and drag and drop files between them - using THEIR speed. So, even if you're connected at 14.4k you can transfer files between two T1 machines at T1 speed! Nice!

Haha... does Kim read messages here too? Yes, I too would enjoy a chmod option since I do deal with Unix servers often. But I guess both WebDrive and Ztree would have to incorporate that ability, and I'm not sure the FTP protocol supports chmod commands.


PS - I like the fact that your forum has a Preview feature. Isn't Victor using the same software?
