See below the log for the operation, I'm using save sessions to run schedule tasks, that runs .wsf files that perform the download of file through a winscp client
three days ago it started to perform an extra LIST -a after the get operation, not sure what changed, but I need to stop it, it makes the log file huge and unmanageable

what could be causing this?
How can I fix the command line/Winscp configuration?

It's before not after the get operation. Anyway, WinSCP always does that if the server does not support MLST command. Do you have a log file from a session before the change?

I reviewed more log files and I discovered this was using IPSwitch before, then when it was moved to WinSCP, we started observing the reported behavior, but also have other scripts that are running WinSCP and do not have this issue.
Attached bellow is one log sample.

You mention I could have something to do with the server supporting MLST, how can I find out is this particular FTP server has this issue?

thanks again

It's SFTP session, not FTP. With SFTP, the problem never occurs.

In the FTP session log, you will see WinSCP asking server to list it's features with FEAT command. If the list includes MLSD line, it means the server supports MLSD and MLST commands. Most servers nowadays do. MLST has been proposed back in 2007.

For example:

with even more research I found a log file when we were using Winscp, for this very same process, it seems to be back and forth between Ipswitch and WinSCP
here is a pieces of the log file

You were using an older version of WinSCP back then, that was not logging directory listing yet.

OK, so, if I understand correctly, this Is what could have happened, when the WinSCP was upgraded it started loggingthe directory listing, since the server most like does not support MLST it is getting this huge list of files from within the remote folder. It was not happening before becasue the older version of WinSCP was not logingthe directory list. Good, I can Explain it, now how can I fix it? Those Huge files are taking a lot of disk space

That's correct.

There's not much you can do though. Either upgrade your FTP server to some modern one or wait for WinSCP to implement this improvement:
