I am using winscp scripting. So, when I upload files to some directory, it uploads even if directory is not existing. I don't want winscp to create a directory on the remote server, when uploading files. Is it possible to change that setting?

What protocol are you using? Please post a full log file showing the problem.

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. For posting extensive logs you may use pastebin or similar application. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you may email it to me. You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile. Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have emailed the log.

This is not actually a problem. I am using FTP protocol. I just don't want WinSCP to create a folder on a remote server if not existing. Say, this is my script:

start.bat:
Code:
winscp /log="log.txt" /script="script.txt"


and script.txt:
Code:
option batch on
option confirm off
option reconnecttime 5
option transfer ascii

open myFTPserver

put "D:\file1.php" "D:\file2.php" "D:\file3.php" ./www/example.com/noSuchFolderOnRemoteServer/

close


I am simply uploading 3 files and it is not only uploading, but creating "noSuchFolderOnRemoteServer" folder and uploading those files there. I just don't want WinSCP to create a folder if not existing and maybe show some error like "no such folder" or something like that.

This is just script, but not GUI, you understand I know Smile
So, is it possible to turn off automatic folder creating, when not existing?

Diky moc for reply Smile

WinSCP just does not create the directory automatically. So please post a log file to let me see what's happening there.

OK, you are right. With (and only with) FTP protocol, WinSCP actually creates the destination directory if it does not exist. It is semi-bug.

Can it be fixed in future versions of the programm? Because it is important for what I do with winscp.
