Topic "Can't disable copying of non-updated files"

Author Message

I use WinSCP 4.3.5 on a Windows 7 portable.
I transfer files using FTP without encryption.
I use the commander GUI.
I connect to a server at OVH.
You can see the session log at

I do a lot of updates, copying local files to the remote server.
When I copy a complete directory, WinSCP always copies certain files, even when I indicated to only copy new or updated files and I just copied them.
The strange thing is that, when I go into the directory, I select the files separately and copy again, those files are not recopied.
I tried this both in automatic and binary transfer mode.

I can see lot's of skipped files in the log, what would possibly indicate they were skipped for being "old". So it looks ok.

Can you send me an email, so I can send you back a debug version of WinSCP to track the problem? Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have sent the email. Thanks.

You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile.
