Moving and Duplicating Remote Files

With WinSCP you can manipulate remote files directly on the server without downloading them to local machine. You can particularly move or duplicate remote files to different remote directory. You can also duplicate a remote file to different server using local temporary copy.

Moving Remote Files

To move remote files, select them in file panel and then go to File(s) > Move to. You can also drag selected files to a different directory in file panel listing or directory tree.

You will be then prompted with the dialog, where you can alter a destination directory and specify operation mask.

You can also use the function to rename a group of selected files using operation mask. Just remove the target path, to make current directory the target.

Note that most servers do not allow moving files across different file systems. Also you may not be able to move file if the target file already exists.

Duplicating Remote Files

To duplicate remote files, select them in file panel and then go to File(s) > Duplicate.

You can also drop remote files to any session tab to duplicate them.

If you want to duplicate files to the same session, you can also drag selected files to a different directory in the file panel listing or directory tree while holding down the Ctrl key.

You will be then prompted with a Duplicate dialog.
