Keep up to date stuck on checking for changes

Hi there,
I'm currently testing keepuptodate command in my local environment in order to deploy correct full command on a server and I got a problem with keepuptodate.
I'm on Windows 10 with "Xlight FTP Server" as test server, and I saved access as "test_local" on WinSCP (I know it's not a good practice but it's just a test)
The command i wrote in the shell is
WinSCP.exe test_local /Console /Script=script.txt

and the script.txt contains
option batch on

option confirm off
option transfer automatic
keepuptodate -delete F:\mirror_test /

But after launching the script, the console stuck on "Controllo modifiche nelle cartelle 1...", I have italian WinSCP so must be something like "Checking changes in folders 1...".

I also tried by logging the script with the
option and here's the log

In my mirror_test folder I just have an image of 23KB and the root of my FTP it's empty.

Is there something I'm doing wrong?
