Topic "How does WINSCP delete things"

Author Message


How does WinSCP handle the removing of files on a server running ssh? I assume it doesn't just excute the "rm" command.

Actually, with SCP protocol, it uses "rm". With SFTP protocol, it sends request to SFTP server to delete a file. How the server performs that, depends on the server.
