Are you using the latest version of WinSCP? Please attach a full session log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate the session log file, use /log=C:\path\to\winscp.log command-line argument. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. 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 can mark the attachment as private.

## How to use ResolveSymlinks=0 to avoid download symbolic links?

Our website has some symbolic links which developer made for some purpose. But when use Winscp script to backup our website, the symbolic links break the script and the backup cannot be completed. we try the following ways:
1. add -rawsettings ResolveSymlinks=0 to open command in the script, it does not.
2. add /rawsettings ResolveSymlinks=0 to winscp.exe as parameter, it told us:
Host: ResolveSymlinks=0 does not exist.

Please give us some help.

Thanks,
