Topic "Keep remote up to date"

I cannot get the "Keep remote directory up to date" to work. It brings up the dialog box, but when I click Start, it just sits there and no files get copied. If I do a "Compare directories" first, it shows the differences, and if I do a "Synchronize local directory with remote directory" it copies the files. I suspect the "Synchronize" and the "Keep up to date" should be basically the same - but something is wrong. (Using SFTP)

"Keep remote directory up to date" watches for changes in selected directory. Once it detects a change (like when you save the file in editor) it performs non-recursive local->remote synchronisation of the directory where the changed file is located. I.e. it does nothing immediatelly after you press "start", what is maybe something you've expected.

i have the same problem. everytime i start this option it worked only once. that means only the first changed file will be updated. after that nothing is happend. no error!

i guess the reason are stange permissions. i have: "rwr---rwx". but "set permissions" and "preserve timestamp" are not enabled.

thanks - claus

It seems like rather different problem, which I have never experienced. And currently I have no idea how to help you. Maybe some other user will.
