When multiple items are selected, unselecting an expanded folder does not unselect its contents. If a folder is unselected either the contents of the folder should no longer be selected or there should be a prompt. This is a major issue when downloading content from FTP as it could result in literally Gigabytes of data being downloaded by accident!

This is expected behavior. The selection for the child items only remains when using command-click. It is a common use case that you want to select the parent folder but not its content.

No, because if I have files in a main directory and in a subfolder that has been deselected I would not want the files from the subdirectory to end up in the main folder; it could cause problems if some files had the same name but different content (such as an index file).

Well, it just goes to your download folder as if you download any regular file. Isn't that what you expect?

First, thanks for your help making a great program!

I don't think I was clear enough when I submitted the bug; my apologies.

I can understand wanting to select a folder but not its contents, the problem is with UN-selecting the folder: if a shift-select was performed and a command-select on the expanded folder. Where does the content go if you download the content without downloading the folder?
