When you recently restored the FTP site, you (presumably inadvertently) also included the inaccessible directory /incoming. It has not been present for a long time. It would be appreciated if you could remove it.

BTW, when using a wildcard copy with a date range from the ftp site (TCC 13, all recent builds), it is almost impossible to interrupt, esp. if it is searching for a few files to copy that meet the date range requirement.

I cannot conceive of any reason why this would be an issue for you. The
/incoming directory has always been there (though it has usually been
hidden). The /incoming directory is heavily used by JP Software.

Please hide it again. The inaccessibility of the directory when not hidden causes an unsightly set of warning messages when accessing the FTP site via TCC. It is a cosmetic issue, which came up a few years ago, and which you had solved by hiding that directory (for which I am grateful).

Not unless you're crawling the ftp site, which is (1) a really bad idea, (2)
useless, and (3) completely unsupported.

The public ftp site is only maintained for the benefit of a half-dozen users
who cannot access the web site. We do not provide any support for accessing
or installing any files on the ftp site, and I intend to shut down all
public access to ftp.jpsoft.com in the not-too-distant future.
