Settings - Misc

Dialog Box Options

Diff Tool
  • Command
    Enter (or browse to) a path where a diff tool of your choice is located. The default command points to the freeware version of ExamDiff that is shipped along with FtpVC.

  • Arguments
    Specify the command-line arguments to be utilized when running the diff tool. The following internal FtpVC variables can be used to construct arguments:

    • $F1
      Path of the first compared file.

    • $F2
      Path of the second compared file.

    • $FD1
      Display name of the first compared file.

    • $FD2
      Display name of the second compared file.

    The default arguments (used by ExamDiff or ExamDiff Pro are): "$F1" "$F2" --no_history --left_display_name:"$FD1" --right_display_name:"$FD2"

  • Ask about getting compared remote file
    This option allows you to get the exact copy of a compared remote file after comparison. If this option is selected, FtpVC will ask "Do you want to copy remote file you just compared to local file <file name>?" after the diff tool is closed, after every comparison.

Log file
  • Copy log to file
    Select this option if you want FtpVC sessions to be logged to a file.

  • For each new session
    Select whether to replace or append to the log file for each new FtpVC session.

  • Log file path
    Enter (or browse to) a path where your FtpVC log file is located.

Misc
  • Silent error reporting
    Select this option if you want FtpVC to silently log all errors instead of displaying them and waiting for your response. This option is useful for batch processing of multiple files in an unattended mode.

  • Minimize to the Taskbar Notification Area
    If this option is selected, when FtpVC is minimized it will go into the system tray.

  • Use Windows filetype icons
    If this option is selected, FtpVC uses standard Windows filetype icons in the file view.
