Cyberduck seems to be rewriting local paths to always be rooted from the C: drive, even if the real source is another drive or UNC path. Local and Network paths are affected. This definitely affects FTP and SFTP, I'm guessing it affects all protocols.


  • ALL uploads, initiated via Keyboard (Alt+Up), Context Menu, File Menu, or Drag & Drop fail on all non-C: drive local paths. All paths have their local drive (D:, E:) or UNC server (\Server) rewritten to C:. Of course, since the file isn't actually there, the transfer fails.

  • Drag & Drop Downloads to paths not on C: drive have also have their leading identifier (e.g. D: or \Server) rewritten to C:. Transfers succeed, but the local path is rerooted to the C: drive. If a file was to be downloaded to D:\Path\To\, then the file is downloaded to C:\Path\To\ The \Path\To directories are created on C: if they do not exist. This happens for all non-C: local drives, mapped network drives, and UNC paths.

  • The "Download To..." command works correctly.

  • If the default download folder specified in Preferences -> Transfers -> General -> Downloads -> Download Folder is not on the C: drive, then the "Download" command fails in a similar manner as Uploads and D&D Downloads.
