custom command for duplicating files

Hi all,

many times, I need to copy remote files with the attributes " -r --no-preserve=mode,ownership" to keep the target ownership and rights in case it exists. The default duplicate command does not provide these so I tried to create some custom command in WinSCP like:

cp -r --no-preserve=mode,ownership ! !?Target:?!/!

Target I wanted to fill with the current path by default, but obviously, this fails here as this is also the char for the prompt ending. How do I create this custom command correct?

I also first tried to "!&" instead of ! for the source to be able to copy multiple files, but then got that error "cannot combine ..."??

Any help would be very much appreciated
