FTP Question

many ftp clients allow the transfer of multiple files simultaneously. is it safe to do this when ftp'ing to an xbox? it seems like this could greatly speed up the time it takes to ftp many small files (trainers, screenshots, etc.), but i don't know if this is supported. i am using xbmc.

is it filezilla?

 

most the time when a ftp client allows multiple file transfers at a time it just cuts the speed of each transfer in half (or in thirds or however many simultaneous transfers have it set to). sometimes you can sqeeze an extra mb or so out when doing this. its sorta like finding the sweet spot.

 

and yes should be safe. ive done it. everything works fine for me.

ok, thanks. i am using 10 files at a time now and have not had problems yet. some xbmc skins have 2000 files, and would take nearly ten minutes to transfer. now its only 1-2 minutes. much better! i just wonder about fragmentation...
