I've been using ws_ftp since pretty much forever. All my sites have all lower case files and names. Now I switched to Filezilla and it's making a mess od things.

How do I force lower case names and extension on Filezilla? Searched and I see requests back to 2003, their forum has no answers, FAQ... does anyone know? Or do I have to get some extra utility and run it on all my directories for the website data?

I think I found the setting for local editor, same problem. With other ftp, double click on a file, it opens in word (I still edit web pages as text) FZ it tries to transfer. If I click Edit it opens in a browser, or downloads the file to the main FZ folder? How is that Edit?

For free I get what I paid for. There's always a learning curve for any new software, especially in my case since I've used ws_ftp since the 90s. But for uploading to stock sites, FZ has worked just fine. It's managing my websites and for others, that it's a bit of a "nightmare".  ;) I still have an old computer and laptop with XP, I was just trying to move into the 21st Century. So much for that smooth transition. ps ws_ftp doesn't work on my Windows10 computer unless I buy another copy.

Did you try and run it as Administrator?

There is also a compatibility setting that you can try.

Big mistake!  I've moved into the 21st century unfortunately and it isn't pretty.

I use filezilla only for Canva and it works fine, but haven't tried to use it for anything other than simple transfers.  Good luck with that whole 21st century thing - turn back before it's too late!

Or VM Virtual Machine that will run some old software.

I'm using WinSCP for ftp - free and very easy to use
