Topic review


Here's the script:
option batch on
option confirm off
cd \lan\drop
lcd c:\filetran\dropup
option exclude thumbs.db
put -delete *.*

The delete part fails for read-only files with the error:
System Error. Code: 5. Access is denied

Deleting read-only files

We use WinSCP for an automatic file transfer job where it FTPs files to a folder on a remote computer, then deletes the files at the source location. The deletion part fails and exits out though if the file is marked as read-only.

Is there a way to either have WinSCP delete read-only files, or mark all files as non-read-only before the deletion step?
