Move a file from remote server to local PC,
if there is a file in local PC with the same name as
the remote file to be downloaded, a confirm dialog of overwriting will prompt. Click "No", the remote file will be removed from the server! Sad

How do you download the file to local directory? Do you use drag&drop? I suppose so. If you do, than you had enabled the move via drag&drop in Preferences. There is stated that it is not recommended! Exacly for the reason you've described.

You may read more on the topic in F.A.Q.

If you do not use drag&drop to download, then I take all this back, but I need more information.

I want to download a file on a remote Solaris server to local PC and remove the file on the server. What I did was to select the remote file first and press the key "F6"(or click the icon "F6 Move" on the bottom bar). It happened that there was a file with the same name in the directory of the local PC. So a confirm dialog of overwriting prompted. Of course I noticed it was a misdoing and I want to cancel the operation by click "No". But the program removed the file on the remote server. Although, clicking "Abort" will reserve the remote file. But I do think clicking "No" should do nothing as clicking "Abort".

For example, this won't happen when I want to move a local file to the remote server if it happens that there exists a file on the server with the same name.
