This is a perfect product for developers like me who have a team of freelance developers working for them and need to operate some form of version control over a distributed environment. Ingenious solution!
However while I have no concern that FtpVC can handle the number of files that we are working with (around 2000 template HTML files in 200 directories) I do find every operation is slow.
I am happy to check in and out single files at a time but each operation/file takes around 5-10 seconds for files of around 10kb.
I am working in the UK on a tested broadband collection of 6.5Mb, talking to a UK based server hosted with Rackspace in the docklands with a ping return from my location of 31ms.
I have found other Ftp software to be much quicker, I am aware that additional files are being read/written from the server for each operation, but still it feels like it takes a long time for each file.
Although I have only been using FtpVC for under a month, I am a fan and will stick with it despite being slow because it solves a huge headache for me version control/ftp wise.
Are there any tricks I can use to speed things up a bit??
