i’m having this trouble with NetDrive. I use NetDrive as FTP connectro to local unit on Windows Server 2019 Standard (VM). I correctly connect to remote Drive but when i browse the remote folder i see that every subfolder name has beofre a date or a time stamp, like this:
Same problem here. At our site it appears just after the latest update when accessing cloud storage via SFTP. Version is 3.8.888 (when checking about it says it was released at 08/29/2019). We’ve installed at 2019/30/08, your posting was also sent at 2019/30/08 so I think this is a new bug which makes netdrive unusable without any fix or working work-around via (S)FTP.
Hello, attached to this mail you’ll find the asked VERBOSE logfiles as ZIP archive. I’ve also attached screenshots in chronological order as I was clicking in explorer while VERBOSE logging. You can clearly see, that NETDRIVE3 now since the update append the date and/or time of a file or a folder to the filename/foldername which results in access errors. For example the folder displayed as “2008 $temp” is really named as “$temp” on the SFTP server connected. The misbehaviour appeared directly after the last update at August 30 / August 31.
i updateted the version to the latest as you told me, but it fixed partially my problem. Some folders do not show date anymore (good!), some others show date before folder name.
You can have a look at the screenshot:
Hello, same here. First I updated to the link postet here which resulted in Version 3.8.898 and rebooted. Then I’ve got the same result as @e317-info . Some folder were correctly displayed, some not with the year of the file date attached again.
But wait for this: after reboot I’ve got the message, that again a new version is avaiable 3.8.900. First I waited unsure if the previous fixed worked and I skipped this update to see the result. After realizing, that the patch link posted doesn’t solve the problem I manually updated by downloading from the website www.netdrive.net/download. After installation and reboot I’ve got 3.8.900 now.
Look at this result: now the drive is displayed as empty although connected to the SFTP server with FileZilla everything is fine. As a paying customer the promised SFTP function is essential for me. WebDav is not really an option as we need exact file date time recording when copying files between cloud and local storage which is correctly provided via SFTP & the Strato HiDrive service. Additionally SFTP is needed due security issues.
I don’t want to blame support, but why is this not tested before publishing such buggy versions at your site / or even in beta phase? Meanwhile other customers and users are also posting the same problem in the support forum:
Thank you for the previous attempts to analyze and solve the problem, but this seems to be not the right thing to fix it at all.
To solve the problem I would urgently suggest to publish a fix as soon as possible or to provide a documented and understandable downgrade method to a previous version of Netdrive which works properly with SFTP.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards, Michaela.
P.S.: I’ll attache further screenshots and VERBOSE log as soon as possible.
Confusing: after Netdrive (which was freshly started after reboot directly after the last update to 3.8.900) failed due resulting in an empty folder I just closed the app and started in again. Now I’ve got the same result as in 3.8.898 but even more confusing: folders with year or time as prefix are mixed with folders correctly displayed
It is unacceptable that the program hasn‘t been working for a week. It is weekend again, and there is no update or reply from anyone. Frustration is starting to rise. After all, we are paying customers. It has been days since the 1st time we informed.
