is that normal ?

also i noticed when setting group and owner to administrators and admin, that not all folders and files below the selected folder (inside it) were changed.

is this a limitation of scp protocol should i use sftp or is this a bug ?

using winscp 5.7.4

Did you check Set group, ownership and permissions recursively?

If you did, please attach a full log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. 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 can mark the attachment as private.

It's probably truncated already in ls output.

yes you're right. i just did ls -l on it and it is truncated.

isn't there a better way to determine what groups are associated with the folder, one that wouldn't truncate and risk causing problems later on ?

Use SFTP protocol. Though it does not support setting owner/group by a name if your server is OpenSSH (or other SFTP version 3 implementation).
