I am trying to upload 230+ files on to an FTPS server.. all the files TOTAL are like 5 mb so each is a few kb. I upload the file with this line of code:

ftps.PutFiles(@"C:\blablabla\*.csv", @"blablafolder/test", FtpBatchTransferOptions.XCopy, FtpActionOnExistingFiles.OverwriteAll);

But it takes 2 a 3 hours... this isn't right anyone knows why???

Applies to: Rebex FTP/SSL

Can you please create the communication log and send it to We should be able to tell what is going on. How to create the log file is described here.

In the meantime I have got an idea, what can be the cause of the problem. It can be related to the FtpBatchTransferOptions.XCopy. This option will recursively traverse WHOLE "C:\blablabla" directory (including all subfolders). If you want to upload only files from the "C:\blablabla" directory (not from subfolders) use the FtpBatchTransferOptions.Default instead.

But this is only assumption. The log file can tell us more.
