Any ideas why? I'm running Dreamweaver CS4 on Windows 7 64 bit. Running AVG Anti-Virus as well. FTP transfer takes forever. Used to run it on Vista 64 bit and had no problems.

Thanks in advance!

Have you tried a 3rd party app like FileZilla and compared the 2? Has anything changed on your web server side?  As far as Dreamweaver goes, it's never been the best at FTP, especially with a lot of files or large files.  Do you have anything checked in DW that you normally wouldn't have checked like Passive FTP, Proxy, IPv6?

Hi now2010,

Check the DW site definition's FTP settings and look for "FTP Performance Optimization"

If that is checked, uncheck it and try again.

Try FireFTP (free) or WSFTP Pro (better but costs $).
I tend to use the latter when uploading more than 5 files at a time.
