Hello colleagues,

No access on subfolders with the same folder name as the parent folder on the server side is a serious bug. For further details see the attached screenshot of the obstacle.

....html\winalldat is my subdomain winalldat.ivdk.org (No 1.)
....html\winalldat\winalldat is a subfolder of winalldat.ivdk.org (No 2.)
which contains files, documents, updates etc.

There is no way to access the No. 2 (child) folder "winalldat" with WinSCP.
note: other ftp programs like filezilla (portable) do not have a problem to access this
folder hierachy.

Any suggestions to remedy the obstacle or a workaround for the problem are welcome.

Kind regards

Ronald - www.ivdk.org

First, try to clear a directory cache:

If that does not help, please attach a complete session log file.

Hello Martin,

thank you very much for your reply. Instantly after receiving your e-mail I disabled all caching adjustments of my winalldat winscp profle including your built-in cleanup function. Now everything works fine as it should and the folder access problem has gone!
Additionally I checked the content of the winscp.ini seeking for keywords like "cache".

Perhaps it would be a good idea to offer the winscp user an automatic procedure to get rid of deprecated and useless contents in the winscp.ini file. I found a lot of very old (deprecated) history entries in my winscp.ini file.

Cheers,

Ronald
