Each opened file by winscp create a temp. directory (like scp4154) and on exit all those directories got deleted automatically.

Notepad++ FTP_Synchronize plugin is not deleting temp. directories and temp. directory is named as user@server.com, so it keep all directory structure same on FTP and local.

Here is how Notepad++ FTP_Synchronize plugin save temp. files on local disk,

- tmp
-- user@server.com
--- public_html
---- any_directory
----- any_file.*

-- anotheruser@sameORotherserver.com
--- public_html
---- any_directory
----- any_file.*

- and so on...

So we have a backup just like Notepad++ FTP_Sync which is really useful.
Only that feature, i prefer to use Notepad++ FTP_Sync

--== SOLUTION IS SIMPLE FOR WINSCP ==--
1- Don't Create Sub temp directory like scp4254 etc
2- On Exit don't remove any of temp directory.
--== That's it ==--

your answered is not there, If you telling about existing answer then he is talking about sync functionality in winscp which is time costly.

Have you read above solution with my question, its a lot of useful feature in development, i can't explain. I want to skip nppftp because of slow speed and one file upload at time but this feature is awusume, i always have backup in my local dir. Many projects only need to interact with a few file, so next time we don't need search working file in ftp because we already have in backup due to this feature.

It will hardly take your 10min i guess and i don't think so there is any advantage to remove temp. scrxxxx directory. Just don't create scrxxxx and that's it, i guess if you not create scrxxxx dir, then you even don't need to comment delete temp. dir code.

SUMMARY:
Please see very simple solution i have with post at the end.

First, it's my answer. Anyway, I'm not talking about synchronization. Read about the Keep Remote Directory up to Date function:

Well, it will definitely take longer, while not too long. But I have like a thousand similarly simple improvements to choose from.

Obviously many people are concerned with leaving possibly sensitive data behind buried in temporary folder.
