Hi

Everyday I got tasks that using powershell with WinSCP to automate downloading files from clients' sftp, they all work fine on most day, except Saturday (between 7:00 to 17:20)

the task that I run is basically looking for new files and then download it, it starts at 5:00 and repeat every 5 minutes for 12hrs in task scheduler and run as Administrator

On Saturday, it starts well (mean I got normal message) at 5:00am and until 7:00, I got this error message for every 5 minutes until 17:20

Error message: Timeout waiting for WinSCP to respond - WinSCP has not responded in time (response log file C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Temp\wscp.tmp was not created). This could indicate lack of write permissions to the log folder or problems starting WinSCP itself.

and after 17:20, I got the normal message:

'Synchronise the link file folder

WinSCP.SynchronizationResult

No files synchronised

COMPLETE'

I only got those error message on Saturday

do anyone know why and know how to fix it?

Thank you very much
martin

There's nothing more to suggest that what is already in the answer on Super User.

Did you try to increase the timeout? Session.Timeout
