I'm using 5.1.4 on Windows 7 64-bit. I'm a new WinSCP user and my interest is in using WinSCP's automatic "keepuptodate" feature.

I have not been able to get it to work for me, and I'm fairly certain that the reason is the 2 hour time difference between my local computer and the server -- 2 hours have to elapse before WinSCP detects that the server's files are older than modified counterparts in the local folder.

Has anyone found a workaround for this? I suppose I could set my local computer's time to that of the server's, but that would not be my first choice.

Advance thanks

Please attach a full log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

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.
