Topic "WinSCP 2.4.2, overwrite of existing files on server."

Hi!

I have two notices about overwriting files in WinSCP 2.4.2.
First, when I copy a file from PC to ssh server I sometimes get a dialog "File already exist. Overwrite?" I would like to see details about original file and new file (like date of change, size, etc). This will be great support for next user move.

Second, when I try to copy a file to a sub directory , I don't get a warning that I will overwrite a file in that subdirectory. Even when I will overwrite a file. From my point of view this is a bug.

With regards,
PSL

I suppose that you mean 3.4.2, not 2.4.2, am I right?

OK, I may add this.

I suppose that you refer to upload using SCP protocol. With this protocol it is not possbile to do this for uploads. Try SFTP instead.
