I'm suspecting this to be a mini bug but nonetheless needing to close Smrt FTP by means of 'End process' in Task Manager.

V 2.5.1006 Licensed Version.

Problem after a transfer has failed.
Trying to upload remaining files on clicking the 'resume' box a tick does NOT appear but the box remains blank.
CPU useage immediately goes to maximum (circa 97%) and the program no longer works.
Note that this has also happened if trying to move the upload box alone.

Please add me to the list of people experiencing this problem. I've been using SmartFTP for the last couple of years but have found the 2.5 builds very unstable with respect to this.

I'm currently using 2.5.1006 on XP SP2. When dragging files from the local browser to the remote machine, intermittently the application will hang when the 'This folder already contains a file with the same name' message is displayed, using up to 99% of CPU. The only way to stop it is using Task Manager.

I have been testing to try and re-produce the problem. I can re-create it by Alt-Tab between SmartFTP and another full-screen application then back again when the message box is diplayed. I have had the problem in general use where it goes straight to 99% CPU as soon as the message box is displayed, but I can't re-produce that. The box doesn't need to be clicked on or responded to for this to happen.

I hope this helps. SmartFTP is a great app and I would like to continue using it (I use the paid-for version at work), but unless this can be fixed I am going to have to look elsewhere.

Edit: Just tried the latest build in the link from your sig mb, and I get the same problem.
