I read here that you can resume downloading when using sftp and don't use drag and drop. How can I transfer file then? I haven't find any instructions. Why it doesn't resume when using drag and drop? Can anyone repair it? Please give some instructions.

It depends on interface (Norton Commander or Explorer) you're using. But in all cases, it is not difficult to find "Copy" command in menu. There are keyboard shortcuts, but they differ for each interface.

It is technical problem. I have explained this many times in this forum, so only briefly about the reason: Source application (WinSCP) of drag & drop operation does not know, where the file is dropped. Putting file in destination directory is responsibility of target application (probably Explorer). So WinSCP cannot do the resume as it does not know, if there is something in target directory already. Also image the case that target of drag&drop is not a folder. It maybe ZIP file. How do I resume to ZIP file unless I implement ZIPPing itself in WinSCP? What if target is FTP server? I would have to implement FTP client, etc....

Of course, everything can be solved somehow. But it takes time...
