Topic "Synchronize: comparison by timestamp fails after 1st run"

Hi there,

just realized a strange behavior/bug in WinSCP 4.3.5 using FTP over SSL:

When I synchronize a directory more than once, differences show up which are not correct. For example a difference is shown on a file with local timestamp "27.12.2011 20:36:39" and remote timestamp "27.12.2011 20:36". (Note the missing part for seconds in the remote timestamp, maybe that's somehow related to the issue). File size is the same on both sides.
See also attached screenshot for details.

Closing and opening WinSCP solves the problem for the next run. After that run I have to close & reopen again to make sync work for the next time.

Thanks for help,
Georg

sorry, just realized the typo in my original post: remote timestamp is "27.12.2011 19:36".

Strange thing is: when I opened the session the timestamp read "27.12.2011 20:36". But after synchronising it changes to "27.12.2011 19:36".
When I open a second session to the ftp host and list the contents in the directory, the timestamp is correctly displayed as "27.12.2011 20:36". Refreshing the directory in both session does not change this. And yes, this is reproducible.

So to me it seems that synchronising somehow disturbs the timezone information or the like.

Do you refer to timestamps shown in the remote panel? Meaning, you start WinSCP afresh, connect, you see 20:36. You perform synchronization, after that the panel shows 19:36. You restart WinSCP, connect and the 20:36 is back. Do I get it right?

In that case, 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.

Yes, correct.

Mail is on the way .. btw, finally I've managed to find the "register" page for this forum and registered, so you should find my e-mail in the profile data, too.
