Re: Using %TIMESTAMP% Command

Looks good, except that it will also copy today's files.

You want this:
put -filemask="*>=%TIMESTAMP-1D#yyyy-mm-dd%<%TIMESTAMP#yyyy-mm-dd%" C:\Users\Test\Desktop\Resources\*

If you have any problems, please attach a full session log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate the session log file, use /log=path_to_log_file 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.

Using %TIMESTAMP% Command

I need to use WinSCP to automate FTP transfers and I need my script to only upload files dated from the day before. Below is the %TIMESTAMP% line from my script:
put -filemask="*>=%TIMESTAMP-1D#yyyy-mm-dd%" C:\Users\Test\Desktop\Resources\*

This command copies all files instead of just the ones with yesterdays timestamp.

Any ideas on how to correct this?

Thank you.
