How do you move files from remote side to remote side? I've selected the option to allow this, just don't see how to accomplish this.

Thank you!

The option means to allow moving files from remote to local as opposite to copying.
You can drag file from remote directory to another using two instances of WinSCP. But this downloads file first to local computer and than uploads it to remote.

Why not use a remote mv command?

I have not said that I cannot do this, I have just not implemented it yet.

Hi, it would be great having this implemented. I often move old versions of my files and old logs in another directory in my remote server, and having to download and then re-upload them is quite boring and time-consuming.
A part this, your software is excellent and I love it. My best congratulations for writing it!
