Hi,

Could anyone help me understand an observation I made on the order in which WinSCP 5.5.3 chose when transferring a few files via SFTP.

On the server side:
user@server:~# ll /chroot/sftp/Show/
total 2942440
-rw-r--r-- 1 share share 1086908586 May 6 01:20 show.s03e01.720p.hdtv.x264-2hd.mkv
-rw-r--r-- 1 share share 876647046 May 6 01:16 show.s03e02.720p.hdtv.x264-2hd.mkv
-rw-r--r-- 1 share share 1046537307 May 6 01:17 show.s03e03.720p.hdtv.x264-2hd.mkv

From the client side I logged in to the server and performed a simple drag-and-drop of the directory 'Show' to a local disk. Files were transferred in the order e02 e01 e03, and I cannot figure out the logic why?

Thanks!

WinSCP downloads the files in the order the SFTP server returns them in directory listing.
