DropCopy - Drag-n-drop local network transfers
Authored by: eduo on Oct 25, '06 05:05:42AM

I like DropCopy but can't help thinking it has more potential than is currently obvious.

It, to me, could work as a shortcut for transfers of several kinds. It currently transfers files between machines that are running it over bonjour, which is good enough. Still I'd add a few things:

1.-Set-up transfer of resource forks as a preference

2.-Set ZIP archive as a preference

3.-Display progress bars (small ones, in the circle icon itself or as growl windoids)

4.-Add ability to create new transfer types to specific places (FTP, SCP, SFTP or SMB transfers to specific servers, dropcopies to remote machines, transfer of files to other accounts in the same machine, etc.) and they show in the same list as the current Bonjour list (after a separator, if anything).

I'd love to get rid of all the aliases and shortcuts and applescripts I currently use where I can drag a file to the Xbox for viewing, or to the PVR for firmware upgrades or to the desktop of my wife's account, etc.

If that's what you want, you should definitely have a look at our ‹bertragen widget. It also offers Bonjour transfers within local networks -- and has the ability to set archiving as default option -- and allows transfers to FTP servers.
