Topic "Is it possible to delete files in background queue?"

Author Message


First of all, thank you s much for WinSCP. I've been a FileZilla user for many years and only used WinSCP for SSH file access--I didn't know about all the great features it has that FileZilla doesn't--like automatically transferring a file upon detecting a change, and synchronizing folders automatically.

I've found all answers to common questions/features but this one: I have selected in the settings to do all transfers in the background queue by default. However, when I delete a folder from a remote directory, it still opens up the window stating it's deleting. Normally it wouldn't be a problem, but for huge folders that take a few minutes to delete it becomes cumbersome not being able to use the program while it's working. Is there any option somewhere to delete files in the background?

No it is not possible yet.

Oh ok, great. Looks like it hasn't been updated in a while, thought. Any idea when this will be implemented?

Just as a side note, the same would also apply to other functions, such as setting owner/permissions recursively.
