Today, dw can;t seem to stay connected to any ftp long enough to complete a synchronize preview... it gets a few folders in, then says waiting for server, then operation cancelled... its doing this on every site, all different servers... what's changed? How do i synchronize thousands of files...its worked flawlessly for around 7years this is really out of the ordinary
Go to Site > Advanced > Recreate Site Cache.
If that doesn't help, the whole enchilada of trouble shooting can be found below:
Look at #2, #4, #6, #10, #12 in that order.
So I tried a full "get" and it also fails and doesn;t downlaod all folders,, I did a get and put synchronize to see if I could complete the transfer, but it simple randomly stops syncing and says operation cancelled.
If nothing in that article worked for you, try uninstalling and doing a CLEAN install. Back up your data files before running this utility.
Yikes, a clean install? that sounds like something a windows vista "tech support" guy would suggest, haha jk, i doubt i would try that for one one issue, everything works otherwise. I think I tracked it down,apparently the server has an 8 connection limit... any way to prevent dw from opening toomany connections to a server?
