Can WinSCP tell if a remote file is finished being created? Will it throw an error if the file is not complete or will it try to transfer a partial file?
Explanation: On some platforms the size of a file is zero bytes until it is complete. On other platforms, the size increases as the file is being created. So one solution to this is to create a corresponding little flag file that indicates when a file is complete, so that when the little file is found, then an automated process knows it can FTP the full/complete file. So, I was wondering what WinSCP's various flavors of FTP (non-secure and secure) will do in determining file completion. Will it fail? Will it throw a warning?
