Hello,
I am a newbie and trying to setup an automated script that will run WinSCP from a local server I'm logged into and then copy a daily backup file to a remote server running OpenSSH.

I have setup a script, backup.txt:
option batch on
option confirm off
open PS-HOST
synchronize local "C:\SVNBackup\" "/cygdrive/d/SVN/"
exit


I then run the script using a batch command, backup.bat:
winscp.exe /console /script=C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\VisualSVN\backup.txt /log=C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\VisualSVN\backuplog.txt

However, after running the files I expected to see in the remote directory aren't there. Here is an excerpt from the log:
2013-03-31 15:16:14.007 Changing directory to "/cygdrive/d/SVN".

I'm trying to figure out why the *.dump files didn't get synced. Any ideas would be most greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Do you mean the local *.dump files?

"synchronize local" means that you sync remote => local.

If you want to sync both ways, use "synchronize both". If you want to remove local files that do not exist in remote directory, use "synchronize local -delete".

Yes, I do mean the local *.dump files. So the "synchronize remote" switch appears to be what I want.

Is there a way to combine the -delete switch so that the local *.dump files will get copied over to the remote directory, then the local files are deleted?
