Automaic refresh after changes in remote dir?

When there is a change (files created or moved or deleted) in the remote directory which is displayed in WinSCP, then this is not displayed in WinSCP. Only after pressing F5 I can see the changes. I press F5 something like a hundred times per day. Is it possible to somehow automate this, couldn't WinSCP update each time something happens in the remote directory? Or, maybe it could refresh every second?


P.S.: I work with WinSCP every day, it's just fantastic.

There should be a refresh of the remote directory if a new file has been created, but there isn't.

I have the same question, all other FTP softwares show the folders or files created in the folder, but WinSCP does not show the folder after it is created. There should be auto refresh on upload and delete folder or files.

You must have turned it off:

It is actually on, I even disabled "Cache visited remote directories" and "Cache directory changes", a bug probably?

Looks like I found the problem, if I have "Transfer on background by default" checked then the changes are not displayed, once I disabled it, I can see new uploaded files correctly.

I believe even if I choose to do transfer on background I still should see the new files without manually reloading the folder. Seems like a bug to me!?

I have sent you an email with a debug version of WinSCP to the address you have used to register on this forum.
