If I have several different folders I want to synchronize with WinSCP, can I save the settings and paths etc for these individually, for quick recall when I open up the synchronize dialog within WinSCP? Same for keepuptodate. I can do this by putting the different paths into different scripts and invoking WinSCP to run the appropriate script, but it would be neat to be able to choose different sync/keepuptodate folders etc from within WinSCP itself too.

Thanks,

Mike

Tried using different instances of the program to monitor each folder; I know it sounds a bit overkill but the program uses minimal system resources so shouldn't be an issue.
Could always try scripting multiple file locations into a text file and calling it that way maybe???

Hope the ideas help.

Thanks. I am using invoking multiple instances of winscp at login (calling a script) to set up multiple monitor jobs. Less often I need to run a full synchronise. I could again just set up multiple shortcuts to get WinSCP to do this using command line options or a script, one for each sync job, but it would just be nice to be able to do that from within the WinSCP GUI, just selecting from a whole bunch of pre-saved sync jobs to run.

Cheers,

Mike

With some effort you can use include/exclude masks for that and store each set into different transfer settings preset.
