How to Change Filestamp Comparison Threshold

The comparison threshold allows for minor differences in files’ last-modified time when using directory comparison.

In theory, files are marked as ‘equal’ if they have the exact same last-modified time.

However, there might be a number of reasons for timestamps to be slightly out of sync while the contents of the files are exactly the same.

To modify FileZilla/FileZilla Pro’s timestamp threshold in directory comparison mode:

  1. In the main menu, click on Edit > Settings….
  2. Select Interface > File lists from the menu on the left.
  3. Change the number in the Comparison threshold field.
  4. Click on OK.
