When comparing :
* Local (C:\TEMP\myfile.bla = a symbolic link to D:\test\myfile.bla = 3 MB)


* FTP (/myfile.bla = 3 MB)

WinSCP always detects that it has changed, and thus always re-copy it again when sync ! (In fact it has not changed : both files are identical).

How to properly detect changes between a local file which is a symbolic link and the same file on FTP ?

Thanks in advance.

Is it really a symbolic link (created using MKLINK)?

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.
