Improve transfer rate for many files

I have discovered an issue when using Cyberduck to download or upload large amounts of files. In this instance I uploaded a 1GB folder of jpegs and then tested how fast it could download them over a very fast 40MB fibre broadband service with ZEN. The upload process took several hours and the download process of the same files took 6 hours.

I tried the same process using another FTP Client 'Interarchy' — this time it only took 5 minutes to download the files from my Microsoft server.

I then attempted to repeat the process again using Cyberduck, except this time I zipped the 1GB folder containing the jpegs which only compressed it by a tiny amount, however this time the download as as fast as 'Interarchy'

Please could you find a way to make Cyberduck as quick as Interarchy at uploading and downloading a 1GB+ folder of loose jpegs etc.using standard FTP protocol on a Mac OSX 10.6.6

Kind regards

  • Summary changed from Enhancement request to Improve transfer rate for many files

If you turn of Preserve modification date and Change Permissions in the Transfers Preferences tab, you should have better results.
