Hi, i use fdm 3.8 RC,
You should download newer FDM version - 3.8 final or 3.9 RC.
when i download a folder from a ftp site, it just downloads around 1kb only and not the full files.
Have you read that 1 KB file? Any problem with opening it in Notepad and copying it here?
There are at least 2 known reasons that I can guess:
1. You should set passive mode for FTP.
2. Anonymous users can only list ftp directory content and you should provide username and login to download files from that site.
