I have had this problem with DW ever since the release of DW 2019. I have called tech support and have not had the issue resolved.

DW 2018.2 works just fine I can change files and connect to the FTP server and synchronize all changed files. I can try the same thing with DW 2019 and it goes through the motions, but never finds the changed files and does not upload any files. This problem is not machine dependent. It happens on 4 different computers.

I have rebuilt my Surface Pro IV from a fresh install of Windows 10. Installed all the Adobe apps fresh and the problem persists.

Very frustrated, India support told me that the new way to upload file to my server is to do it manually! I give up, no one seems to care.

I care .

Seriously thuogh, I never use file synchronization.  It's a mixed bag of tricks that can go seriously wrong for a whole host of reasons.  Mainly,  I work with files locally that are not ready to go live until I say so.   I also keep  files on my remote server that I never want in my local site folder -- .htaccess is one. 

To upload an open file, I use Ctrl+Shift+U.

Or right-click on local site folder and Select > Recently Modified.

I don't work the way you work apparently. I have sites that I modify several files at a time. In DW 2018 I could just sync with "put newer files". I never use "get and put" That way I don't get all of the server files etc. I, like you, don't need them at the local level.

I can see that your method works, but  requires more effort and time on my part for the same result. In DW 2018, I connect to the server, hit the sync button, choose new files and preview to see only changed files, then OK.

Your method requires a right click on the site folder, mouse to select mouse to recently modified and click. Then choose the number of days, and OK. You then wait for something to happen, since there is no indication it is doing any thing except the twirling cursor. I am then presented with my whole file directory with files highlighted that I can then review. If I'm satisfied I click the upload button. If Later in the day I change another few files, all of the files show up that were changed, even if they were already uploaded.

Your Method is a good workaround, but for me, it is not efficient, and doesn't compare my local files with the server files. I just want it to work the way it is documented for DW 2019 & the way it has always worked until now.
