thanks both for putting out a quality product and your continued support. WinSCP made things so much easier through college.

WinSCP 4.0.6, Norton interface, FTP

when using the basic FTP protocol and uploading over an existing remote file the standard "Remote file already exists. Overwrite?" confirmation will appear. everything will copy as standard when confirmed but checking the "Never ask me again" will not prevent the dialog from appearing next time. this appears to only be an issue with FTP, SFTP doesn't have this problem.

possibly related, "Keep remote directory up to date" detects but doesn't upload changes for FTP connections.

Sorry, I cannot reproduce the problem. Can you give me step by step description of what you are doing?

When I drag and drop files to a remote host and those files already exist I get prompted to confirm the overwrite operation. If I select the 'Never ask me again' option it has no effect and the next time I attempt to update (overwrite) an existing remote file I get prompted again. This problem only exists when using FTP for the connection, SCP works as expected.

I'm sorry but I cannot reproduce it. Can you give me more details? Where exactly do you drag the files from? Where exactly do you drop them? What is your setting of Confirmations > Overwriting of files and Confirmations > Drag & drop operations?

OK, I must have been blind.

Fixed already. The issue has been added to tracker.
