Hi,

I have recently upgraded to SmartFTP v3.0.1024.33 on Windows XP.

Previously I had a sub-folder called "My sites" under Favorites which I had pinned to the side of the program window and Auto Hidden, and I still can do this.

However now, each time I exit and start up again, the Favorites folder I've pinned to the side comes up empty, although all of my Favorites are still intact when I look at Favorites from the main menu bar.

(Hope that makes sense!)

Can anybody please help me?

Regards,
Rob

I think it's the same problem as here:

I thought so too, I tried that solution and it didn't work for me I'm afraid :(

Do you see an empty window when you go to the menu: Favorites->Edit Favorites?

Exactly so; although everything is intact in the Favorites menu in the main menu bar.

Check if you have an orphaned desktop.ini in the %AppData% folder. If yes delete it. You need to enable the [x] Show Hidden Files and Show System Files option in the Windows Explorer to see the desktop.ini

Thanks very much for that, it's almost working now. I do have to have the folders list showing, otherwise my Favorites pane comes up blank, but that's close enough!

That's a problem we will fix in a future version of SmartFTP (couple of weeks).

Fabulous! I know it's not really that big an issue, but I've been using SmartFTP for a couple of years now and I've really got used to that feature.

Thanks again and I look forward to the update :(
