Basically I want to add files from the server to a local list, and save the list as "Project 1". At any point later, I can open this "Project 1" file and it will open all contained files from the remote as local copies. When I save any file, the locale file is transferred to the server through SFTP.
If the way to do this is through Synchronizing, I do not want to synchronize the entire server because that's 2GB of files I don't need locally.
I tried around with the following:
- Using Notepad++, I can save local files to a session. However, whenever I re-open WinSCP, the file I had saved are no longer transferrable because their locations have changed due to the random seed generator. WinSCP generates a new folder every session. I can't find a way to disable this.
- Then I found the "Synchronize" option, thought it was what I was looking for, until I saw that was deleting ALL files from my server, requiring an immediate backup. If I hadn't had that backup, I'd be screwed right now. This is terrible, guys. At least provide a warning before you go deleting remote files..
- "Keep Remote Directory up to Date" - I haven't even gotten the courage to try and see what this does due to the spook given by the previous "synchronize option."
Can someone point me in the right direction?
