Cyberduck Mountain Duck CLI

#1970 closed defect (wontfix)

Duplicate File command always does a download of the file

I find that whenever I try to use the Duplicate File command on a remote file Cyberduck first asks for the new name, then proceeds to download the file rather than create a remote duplicate. Is there a way to duplicate files on a remote server without downloading them?

The problem manifests regardless of whether I accept the default name (with date appended) or provide my own.

I've tried this with both 2.8.5 and the 3.0b2 beta.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

This is intended. The feature is implemented by downloading the file and uploading it with a different name. There is no duplicate feature in the FTP protocol itself defined.
