Hello together,

first: winscp makes a lot of things a lot easier - thanx for that!! Smile


As I didn't find any posts regarding my "problem", I'd like to bring up the question myself:

I use notepad++ as the external editor, which supports a feature to automatically save backups
of the edited file.

For example:
The remote file "data.sh" was locally edited, the original would be saved by notepad++ as "data.sh.bak".
Winscp will upload changed file "data.sh" to the remote host, but not "data.sh.bak".

Now, how can I make winscp upload these backup files (automatically) as well as the edited file?


Thanks a lot in advance!

Erik

I've never thought that anyone would want to do that Smile

This issue has been added to tracker nevertheless. So maybe if more people ask for it...
