Not working even in compatibility mode error detail below, how many games do you have in the directory? it worked fine hen i had just a few of them then started to change folder because program only looks for game in the first dir and i had \GAMENAME\BLESxxx\ and did not find those games now all games with \BLESxxx starts creating list then crashes

Found the problem, it was a faulty game folder (incomplete) that caused the crash. Sugestion to author: isn't it possible to add a option to look for bigfiles so we can know witch one are not able to external? thanks for the app.

this explorer desperately needs to add recursive checks for games.

This doesn't work because my application uses Microsoft .Net WPF which is not supported in Mono (Open Source .Net Framework). Sorry!

Sorry, I have my standard settings as default.

With the next version I will write a readme and add some hints in the ftp window.

Did you use OpenPS3FTP 1.3 or OpenPS3FTP 1.3 V2? Yesterday jjolano twittered: "perhaps i should test my stuff before i package and upload it #fail" - I don't know if he means 1.3 V2... I only tested it with 1.3 (V1).

If I got some time the next days I try to support Multimans FTP too and implement some logging to easily find bugs.

Do you have some good ideas for new features in PS3 Backup Explorer?

Yea, but after you've renamed then you don't need any game managers to see what games what. I've used just about all the game managers there are and I still think explorer is the easiest and best.

All Backup Managers work fine with naming like this. I've always done it since my first backup all those months ago and still to the latest backup which was 2 days ago and still all work fine.

If you want you can name the dirs, 1, 2, 3, A, B, C or whatever you like. It doesn't go on the dir name it goes by the PARAM.SFO. If you rename it in the PARAM.SFO then its renamed in the BM.
