WinSCP has been a great file transfer tool. One of the best things is that, in previous versions, during file uploads, it automatically appended the extension ".filepart" to file names. That was important for many reasons, but my reason is that the server I run scans user directories every 5 min looking for files. If it finds a file with the .filepart extension it tags it but goes on. If it finds a file without the .filepart extension, it moves it out of the user's Incoming folder to another internal directory. If a file with a .filepart extension is left for more than 120 minutes, it is considered a failed transfer and moved to a Failed_Xfrs directory.
A new user just installed WinSCP 4.3.5 and that functionality is missing, regardless of whether she has Transfer, Endurance, Enable transfer resume set to "All files" or not.
She is using Windows 7.
Was the .filepart extension recently removed? If so, how can we get it back? Thanks, Greg.
