Topic "Keep Remote Directory up2date doesn't work on network drive"

Author Message



I am connected to a ftp-server and use the awesome feature "Keep Remote Directory up to Date".

It works like a charm when I monitor a local folder on my hard drive.

The problem is if I choose instead a folder on a mapped network drive (also here in my local environment),
it seems that after 1 minute or so WinSCP simply does not recognize any changes to the files anymore.

If I change a file, nothing happens (it is not uploaded at all).
Only in the first minute everything works as expected.

Do you know this behaviour and what can I do to prevent it?

Thanks in advance

Thanks for your report.

Can you send me an email, so I can send you back a debug version of WinSCP to track the problem? Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have sent the email. Thanks.
