Hi Mat ,

Let me specify the problem when I edit the files , I have just tried to press the "Overwrite" and "Skip" button instead of "Resume" It works Ok

However , when i press " Resume" , the programe then immeidately closed .

Can you please explain what is the difference between them when editing Files ?

I used to press "Resume" which has the immediate effect of my website while it seems doesn't change when pressing "Overwrite" and "Skip". Am I correct ?

Please reponse . Thanks alot !!


I tried to reproduce it but I was not successful. The "Resume" button shouldnt usually been enabled for "Remote Edit". Is your transfer mode set to Ascii?

When exactly do you have the "Resume" button enabled and when not? Is there any way to reproduce it?

Can you send a screenshot of the file exist dialog with the enabled resume button during a remote edit session?


Hi Mat ,

In response to your questions, please read below.

1) I used to click Edit>Resume " to edit my files in notepad and it worked so well last week. However , this week , I got a bit problem and it crashes alot . And Yes , you are right , it is not enabled to edit all the time , what I did is to check the "All" box which next to the 4 options "resume , "overwrite" , "skip" and "Abort" and then I press "resume"

2) I only use binary mode to transfer my files.

3) Sorry ! I don't know how to paste the screenshot to here as there is no paste option. Can you tell me how to put the image here ?

Thanks for your help !!
