Topic "Filepart extension is not being used during upload."

WinSCP has been a great file transfer tool. One of the best things is that, in previous versions, during file uploads, it automatically appended the extension ".filepart" to file names. That was important for many reasons, but my reason is that the server I run scans user directories every 5 min looking for files. If it finds a file with the .filepart extension it tags it but goes on. If it finds a file without the .filepart extension, it moves it out of the user's Incoming folder to another internal directory. If a file with a .filepart extension is left for more than 120 minutes, it is considered a failed transfer and moved to a Failed_Xfrs directory.

A new user just installed WinSCP 4.3.5 and that functionality is missing, regardless of whether she has Transfer, Endurance, Enable transfer resume set to "All files" or not.
She is using Windows 7.
Was the .filepart extension recently removed? If so, how can we get it back? Thanks, Greg.

Another person is uploading files with WinSCP version 4.3.4 to my server, and the .filepart is not being appended during the uploads.
Is there a way to turn this feature back on? Setting the menu option under Advanced Options/Preferences/Transfer/Endurance/Enable transfer resume... to "yes" has no effect.

I hope you can fix this because the .filepart feature is the main reason we are using WinSCP.

Thanks,

Greg

When using WinSCP verion 4.2.9 the .filepart extension is automatically appended to the filename, and removed when the transfer completes. Here is a "time lapse" of a typical file transfer that works perfectly:

The PCs sending files are running Windows XP and Windows 7.
They are all using Commander-style GUI windows, doing drag-and-drop.
They are using the sftp protocol.

Thank you for a great file transfer utility. I hope you can bring back the .filepart feature soon.

Please post a log file both from 4.3.5 and 4.2.9. Thanks.

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. For posting extensive logs you may use pastebin or similar application. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you may email it to me. You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile. Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have emailed the log.

Hi The issue is with Renaming file. (Version 4.3.8 Build[1771])

I am a newbie to the SFTP stuff and the GUI is very easy to use. but i have the following issue.

Transfer was succesfully finished, but temporary transfer file 'Myfile.beautifulxml.zip.filepart' could not be renamed to target file name 'Myfile.beautifulxml.zip'. If the problem persists, you may try to turn off transfer resume support.
No such file or directory.

The network engineer says that once the file is in their directory we cannot modify the file. and expects us to supply a file without the .filepart exten. how do i do that with Win SCP.
