 +Some protocols may allow changing ownership by specifying UID/GUID numbers only. In that case you will see both username/groupname and UID/GUID in the boxes in form //name [number]//. If you want to change ownership specify new number only. ((In some cases WinSCP may be able to resolve the UID/GUID itself if you specify username/groupname instead. However the only certain method is specifying the number.)) You can overcome this limitation by defining [[custom_commands#ownership|appropriate custom command]].
