Problem with overwrite confirmation dialog on background transfers

Hi Martin,
when using SFTP background transfers, the "new" confirmation dialog pops up for ever file. I should then be able to (if I understand it correctly), press Yes To All or Shift+Yes for instance, or No To All, but the pop-up just continues for every file.

"No to all" should basically abort the transfer. Yes To All should just finish the transfer.

Maybe I am misunderstanding something, but at least that's what logic dictates, right?

I know about the setting "No confirmations on background transfers" -- but this is not what I want, as I would like to know if for instance a file already exists in target, then sometimes I do *not* want to overwrite. But mostly I want to overwrite every file I've selected to copy without having to press Yes for every single one.

Is this a bug in the dialog or am I just doing something wrong? It just seems illogical compared to other transfer dialogs I'm used to.

regards,
Stian

Are you using the "Transfer each file individually on background by default" mode?

Hi Martin,
Yes I have this setting enabled. I assume this means each file has then its own background thread? But from a user perspective it seems more logical that the dialog would control the entire operation and not each file?

However, turning it off kind of solves the problem, although for performance (maybe) I would've preferred to have it on.

5.10 was released already. Did you have a chance to test it?
