Description

I am using Windows XP 64.

When trying to create a new textfile or folder on the opened sftp drive, I get the following error

Unable to create the file "New Text Document.txt'
File system error (16386)

I can read the contents of the sftp drive without problems though.

I do have write permissions, since with other sftp tools I can read/write using the same login credentials.

This is similar to #106. The problem is that the 'New >' menu should't appear at all for virtual folders. None of the new file creators support virtual folder like Swish. I'm not sure why it appear on XP - it doesn't on Windows 7. I'll have to look into this.

I found a way around this.

Keep a folder on your desktop called New_Folder, also a file called New_File, to drag and drop into the ssh server at whim. It's actually very mac. But who here actually likes mac.

Are you all using Windows XP in classic mode. In the normal XP view you should just be able to use the webtask links in the panel on the left-hand-side.

I'm not very familiar with classic mode but I'll try to come up with a solution if I have some spare time.

I'm actually using Windows 7 but I think the end user I'm trying to use this for is on Vista.

Replying to Jason jvonmitchell@…:

On Windows 7 and Vista you should be able to create a new folder via the New Folder button on the command bar. Or is the command bar hidden? I didn't even realise that was possible.

Hi Guys,

Nice work with Swiss SFTP, I could use the native functionality.

However, I think its doesn't support file editing in place. I tried using it to edit file on remote server, but NO LUCK.

Could you confirm on that. This is blocker. please acknowledge, appreciate a quick response on it.

Thanks.
