In the Transfer Settings...
Just like "Ignore permission errors", I would also like a feature to "Ignore Preserve timestamp" errors.

When I upload files to some sites, I receive an error message regarding timestamps and permissions. So for those site where I don't have permissions, I disable the timestamp preservation. However, other site I like to keep it enabled.
The other option is to ignore the errors instead of enabling/disabling.

Thanks.

You can have host-specific transfer settings using transfer setting preset with host-based auto-selection rule:

Yes, it would be nice to have WinSCP automatically ignore timestamp errors.

I'm having issues uploading files with WinSCP script method.

If the timestamp is invalid (just a time for example, no date) WinSCP just dies and quits when attempting to modify the timestamp.

There should be an option (scriptable too!) that tells WinSCP to ignore any errors while attempting to modify the timestamp.
