Default find files recursively

hi, I am missing the
search for files recursively
feature in Tools/Find Files on FTP Server

Space can be calculated using recursive listing,
so why not search recursive ?

The Find Files dialog already searches recursively.

Ah ok, sorry for my bad explanation.

search for files using recursively directory listing
This is what I mean.
At the moment the search function goes from dir to dir..
But I would like it to get the complete filelist by using
LIST -allR
and look for match of the search string in this complete filelist.

The calculate space function already has this feature implemented.
Normally it goes from dir to dir ...
But you can turn the recursive directory listing on by enabling:
[x] List directories recursively (Not supported by all servers)

When you list recursively the entire listing comes as one, FlashFXP needs to know the location of the files and the format returned by each ftp server isn't exactly the same, some return relative others absolete paths. Support for this may be added at a later time but currently there is no immediate plans.
