"merge folders" no longer an option

Before, when I would upload a folder of files, a prompt would come up asking me if I wanted to merge the files in addition to make duplicates or cancel....

now I only get the option to copy a duplicate, appending (2) to each folder. Why is merge no longer an option? how do I restore this?

thank you!

SmartFTP uses SIZE to detect whether the item is a file or a folder. In your case the server returns a valid size (even though it is zero). However the server should only return the size for a file and not should fail for folders.

There is a chance that we can write a workaround for this particular server. Please post the complete log from the remote browser.

you know what you're I completely forgot we changed our ftp to Cerberus FTP server, and that is when I started experiencing this issue! sorry about that, here is some of the log from the server

the server software as I said is cerberus ftp, but I'm not sure what else to paste here, and I don't want to publicly paste the whole log, perhaps you can provide an email address to send this to if you need more information?

thanks again for your help!
