Topic "Date on local side of SFTP copy takes the current year"

Author Message


In the commander interface when I select a file or a block of files and copy them from the remote server the files copy ok but the year is always the current year. So for example when the file was dated 12/30/2012 the local file after the transfer is dated 12/30/2013 (in the future). I noticed this last year and lived with it but as it's still happening I thought I would note it in a bug report.

Please attach a full log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).
Ideally for a single file upload only. If possible also include screenshot before and after the transfer.

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you may email it to me. You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile. Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have emailed the log.
