Is there a way to copy files to a different directory? I want to have a duplicate of a forum before I upgrade phpBB.

We have been asking for this. You have to download the lot and then upload it. Yeah, I know it takes forever, have done that myself. But at least with DFTP you can zip the files before downloading. Maybe you can let the zip file just stay online while you upgrade. BTW, I thought that phpbb forums came with some way of security copying first?

If you have access to your Cpanel you can copy files to another directory. Sure would be nice if DFTP would do it.:)
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Definitely would like to see this feature added.

I had to dust off an old version of another FTP client just to copy a directory on the server from one area to another. :|
