Can you check that if there is an entry [username]@[hostname] in the user.config located at help/en/faq? Feel free to post the user.config (credentials are encrypted).

They are there and I compared it to a previous version(that this feature worked in) and it looks the same XML structure wise. I am leery about putting up the user.config file itself as there is client specific information there that I am unsure the legalities of sharing it would be (33 different FTP accounts stored).

I have no idea if this is relevant but the config files that have the issue with the password not being recalled are stored in the C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\iterate_GmbH\Cyberduck.exe_Url_y3p2ebapuyakx1wepw5uc1dcj54dho4b and not in C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Cyberduck\Cyberduck.exe_Url_y3p2ebapuyakx1wepw5uc1dcj54dho4b ( and earlier)

Could this be part of the issue?

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

We are unable to replicate this issue both when upgrading or with a new installation. Can you please check that you have checked Use Keychain in Edit → Preferences… → General → Connection.

Using the Nightly Release build it does not restore saved passwords. Use Keychain is ticked though I am curious as to what build dkocher is using.

My Edit > Preferences > General > Connection settings are as follows: Use Keychain is ticked Confirm disconnect is not Default protocol: FTP (File Transfer Protocol)

Current installed build 4.6.5 (16813)

On Windows 8.1
