As requested I've done some more testing with this, however I'm not getting
Just to reiterate, I'm trying to do a recursive download from an FTP Server
to basically do a full backup. It works fine most of the time, but
occasionally the Cwd command fails to change directory causing files to be
downloaded in the wrong place.
I was asked to check what error is bought up but unfortunately the FTPClient
component doesn't generate an error via the OnError event (though it does
for other things so I know I'm checking it right).
There is no permissions problem - using the same username/password I can
download everything via other FTP programs. The only error I get is that
Cwd = false.
I managed to trace the problem down to a simple test which fails every time
- there seems to be a bug when changing between directories that are 3 or 4
layers deep i.e.
Changing from '1/2/3/' to 'a/b/c/d' causes Cwd to fail. This happens
regardless of which server I try it on and in which order I try to download
Like I said in a previous email, with the following alteration the program
works much better, but still fails on some directories:
if not(Cwd) then
HostDirName := SubDir;
Could anyone suggest a resolution or a better way to debug what's going on?
