Cyberduck Mountain Duck CLI

#249 closed defect (fixed)

Timezones Confuse Synchronization

Reported by: Owned by: dkocher
Priority: normal Milestone: 3.2
Component: core Version: 2.5.5
Severity: major Keywords:
Cc: Architecture:


When I upload a directory and am prompted to overwrite files, Cyberduck displays the date/times on the files on the server and on the client in the local timezone. This seems correct. However, if I do a synchronize on the same directory, Cyberduck shows the remote files in GMT and the local files in the local timezone. This causes the synchronization to make bad decisions about which file is newer because the server time is 7 hours (for me) ahead of the client time.

Do not treat this as a duplicate. Whereas in the browser view it might be an enhancement to convert to the local timezone, when synchronizing this missing feature is a bug.

We should use MDTM if available that always returns UTC.
