Here is a minor but useful suggestion.

Have an option in the preferences to refresh a directory after a change has occurred (files moved, transferred, etc.).

Thanks for your time and for creating such a great piece of software!

What kind of change do you mean? Change by WinSCP or by other application?

I thing there some features needed to mahe work easier with huge directories:

a) Don't refresh local pane, if smth changed by another program

b) Checkbox in "copy dialog" "dont refresh folder after an action will be done" - this way you can copy one file to another 10000 on server and immediately go to parent dir

btw, There is a bug in winscp 3.4.2 build 197 russian windows 2000 server - when you try to copy MULTIPLY (not one) files to folder, which contains ~>10000 files, winscp tells you "No argument for format %s" and no dialog appears. Maybe thereis some troubles in translation file ("%s"...?)

You can achieve same, if you stay in parent directory and add the subdirectory name to "target directory" box on upload dialog.

It was really a bug in translation file. I hope that it is already fixed, please try to download the latest translation file.
