I am new to IT and I have just started using WinSCP. I have to use SFTP as my protocol. I need instructions on how to automate uploading and downloading files. I am starting to work with batch files. Can anyone give me direction on obtaining detailed instructions on how to script this process?

Full synchronization function will be in the next release. You cannot use WinSCP in batch files. Use rather some command-line tool, like PSCP or PSFTP.

I have a rather substantial directory tree that I would like to synchronize. Is it possible to set the program to synchronize all files within a root directory including all the files in the sub-directories.

I really like the realtime synchronizing of directories as well as the 'synchronize browsing' I have never seen that in any other sftp client, but I wonder if it is possible to schedule the synchonization for an off-peak time. I have found I get much faster data transfers when I am off peak and some of the files that I am working with are a couple of hundred megs.

thanks for your help,
martin

This will be in next version (within few days).
