Topic "Resume as one of options"

Author Message



I find the "resume" feature of winscp very useful, because my former favourite sftp client from openssh can't do it.

I just had some problems finding out that it works and how it works.I had a partially downloaded file in my local directory and wanted to resume downloading.

I had to use Copy command. I was a little afraid that it would somehow corrupt my partial file without asking. But I did it.

Then it asked whether to overwrite or append. I didn't want either.

Only on the support forums I found out that I need to press Append button and only then winscp will ask me if I want to resume or really append.

I suggest that Resume button is added directly in between the choices when applicable to avoid such confusion.

There is some misunderstanding Smile
BTW, what version of SFTP protocol does your server support? You can see it on status bar on bottom of main window.
