Hi,

I transferred a file from one server to the other using two separate windows of WinSCP 3.7.4 (on Win7, SP1, 64-bit) and had the "disconnect when operation finishes" option checked. This worked as expected but then the second/receiving WinSCP instance complained about the transferred file missing from the temp directory. Apparently, WinSCP removes its temp files on shutdown, which is basically a good thing, but here it causes a problem.

As a workaround I cannot use the disconnect feature, though it would be nice if this could be changed if possible.

Unfortunately there's no way to detect the file is still needed. At least not in general. In WinSCP-WinSCP interaction, the two instances can cooperate to handle this. But that would be a huge change for a small benefit.

Do you know that with newer versions of WinSCP you can transfer between servers within one instance?

Well, 3.7.4 was released in February 2005, that's why:

Ok, I already thought that this would be hard to implement and I agree that this isnt reasonable.

Whoooops...
I recently installed Win 7 and thought that I had a somewhat recent version of WinSCP in my local archive. Apparently I was wrong :mrgreen:
In the current version the copyright is indeed 2013 :D
