I’ve been using Forklift, and for some reason it’s eating obscene amounts of memory and causing me issues. So I reinstalled Transmit from Panic, and it seems much more stable - but there’s a wrinkle.
I can’t seem to “move” files.
I have a folder full of files on Server X that I need to get onto my local computer. In Forklift, I could just drag the items, hold down the Command key, and it would download the files and clean up after itself. Not so much with Transmit.
Is there something I’m missing? Do I need to use Transmit Disk instead? Thoughts?
You do what you want of course but “moving” has always been something I’ve done on a computer not between computers. It was always valuable to me to see the files in their new location before they disappeared from the old. Especially when transferring between different operating systems. My interpretation is that Transmit is just being safe.
I’m pretty sure it isn’t possible with Transmit, but is this something rsync --remove-source-files could do better anyway? Transmit doesn’t help set up sync protocols directly between two remotes at all, unfortunately.
This is what scares me about any of the Finder replacement apps like PathFinder and the FTP apps that can work locally on my Mac. Apple keeps changing the underlying OS and building out the file system. It’s tough enough for the backup guys like ShirtPocket and Bombich to keep up. Must be terrible for the Finder replacement guys!
