Topic "auto skip without prompting for existing file"

Dear Support Team,

I have using winscp437 to connect to SFTP server. Because I usually upload a larger number of files, I will leave the process overnight. I really don't have time to lookup the process if there's any existing files in the server. Is there any option in WinSCP to auto skip existing file without prompting first? I really need that feature.


Thanks,
Herman

Use New and updated file(s) only:

If I use that option and the uploaded file is newer, the existing file in the server will be replaced, right?
What I needed is even the uploaded file is newer, it should skip and not replace the existing file.

Actually, I also have set permission that a user cannot replace or edit the existing file, but the prompt still shown asking to delete, abort, retry, and skip.

Is there any way that when we do the upload, there will be no prompting, and the default action for any conflict is skip?

Thanks.

Use synchronization, with both comparison criteria (Modification time and File size) disabled

Thanks for your kind respond regarding my question.

I have tried the synchronize option, it really helps to skip the existing file, but it didn't record which files were skipped in the log file... Sad I need those records to cross check the contain of the existing files.

If I give you a donation, is it possible for you to make a little modification in the error prompting so it will do the "skipp all" action without waiting us to click it?

Try upgrading to 5.1, it has better logging of synchronization.

I have upgrading to 5.1, the log file for synchronization process is more detail now. But, the connection to my SFTP server is not stable, after transferring several files, there always error occured:

. 2012-10-05 18:01:16.376 Network error: Software caused connection abort
* 2012-10-05 18:01:16.376 (ECallbackGuardAbort) callback abort
. 2012-10-05 18:01:16.438 Fatal error while disposing the SFTP queue.
. 2012-10-05 18:01:16.438 Connection was lost, asking what to do.
. 2012-10-05 18:01:16.438 Asking user:
. 2012-10-05 18:01:16.438 Network error: Software caused connection abort ()

This kind of error is never happened when using WinSCP437. FYI, I am using Titan SFTP for the server side.
Could you help me, what caused this problem? And why it is happened with the latest version?

Thanks.

I have tried your debug version. I didn't have access to drive C, so I must create environment variable WINSCPTRACE.
The problem is if I didn't create the trace file, the transfer always returned an error (see attachment).
But, if I create the trace file using environment variable, the transfer just working fine.
So, the trace file didn't record any error.

Do you know what is the cause of the problem?
FYI, I also got the same error transfer when using WINSCP 5.1 (non debug version).
