Topic ""File already exists" when renaming"

Author Message



I always get a message about an already existing file ("File '$NEW_FILENAME' already exists. Overwrite?") when renaming a file, which is followed by the message "Invalid access to memory".

However, the file is actually renamed.

I am using WinSCP 4.3.9 under wine-1.5.10-174-gf881dcf.

I am using sftp to access the server.

Both the server and the client are using Debian GNU/Linux Squeeze (with wine build from git).

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.
