Compare directory : Wrong "No difference found"
WinnSCP could be fanstastic for me, in order to obtain a NTFS image of a network drive.
But it happens that WinSCP does not see any differences on directories obviously different.
It happened for example on the "Users" folder from a drive : empty on the local drive, 5 folders on remote. The same inconstancies are found when using the "Synchronize ..." command. All files under "Users" are not found.
I fixed the problem by using another tool to copy the missing folders to the local NTFS target.
The setting is (not sure for labels, I use french version) :
- from distant to local
- mirror files
- remove files
- see changes
- compare with file sizes only (as I have problems with I hour shift for some files, despite having checked "use DST" in the Environment tab in session dialog)
