But there are two killer problems when I set up an automatic update using the GUI (see screen shots in attached doc1.doc):
1. The dialog box is modal: Once I set up the automatic sync and hit "Start", the WinSCP GUI is locked up so I can't do anything else in the GUI until I hit "Stop" (which terminates the automatic copying) and then "Close".
2. Worse, when I close the dialog box, then the whole automatic update setup is lost. If I want the same automatic copy to happen again, I have to enter it all over again.
So is there any way to save a "Keep remote directory up to date" setup so it persists and, preferably, automatically restarts whenever I open this particular WinSCP saved session? I'd prefer to do it thru the GUI, so I don't have to learn the WinSCP scripting language, but if scripting is the only way to get this functionality, I'm willing to do it.
