File overwrite prompt every time despite "Yes To All" option

Hello !

This is a bug report, I'm using the portable version of WinSCP 5.2.3 build 3436.

When I select a group of files in the windows explorer and drag and drop them into a remote folder in the WinSCP window, if these are files that are already present, I am prompted, most logically, with a dialogue asking if I want to overwrite the first file.

However, even if I choose "Yes to All", for every following file already present, I will be asked, again and again, if I want the remote file to be overwritten by the local file.

So, the "to All" option isn't taken into account.

I'm attaching a screenshot, for clarity.

Well, that's it. Thanks for the renewed efforts with that great program :)

Thanks for your report. I was not able to reproduce your problem.
I have sent you an email with a debug version of WinSCP to address you have used to register on this forum.

You seem to have enabled option Transfer each file individually. That effectively creates a set of unrelated transfer batches running in parallel. The option Yes to All has validity for the batch only. It does not affect the other batches.

Aaah, I had overlooked that option ! I must have ticked it in the early stages of discovering the program, not knowing what it was.
(Well, to be frank even after reading https://winscp.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=11105 that remains a bit cloudy in my eyes and I feel it ought to be overruled by the fresher request to not be asked for confirmations), but, well, case closed.

Thanks for solving the issue :)
