Destination File to be Overwritten displays incorrectly



Destination File to be Overwritten displays incorrectly

If I attempt to copy a file using winscp 5.7 Build 5125 and change the destination name in the upload box then click ok the following occurs.

If the file exists on the destination it lets me know - but displays the source filename as the overwrite name rather than the actual file name being overwritten.

In this example I'm copying "030515.xmt" to destination as "shardrft"

Winscp detects that "shardrft" exists and prompts me to ask if I'm ok with overwriting it but when it does so it asks me if I want to overwrite a file by the name of "030515.xmt" the source name rather than the actual desintation file name that will be overwritten.

The copy/overwrite completes properly but the filenames displayed are confusing.

Running Windows 7 Pro Sp1 32bit
Transfer Protocol SFTP
I'm using the GUI version with Commander Interface.
I don't recall this being an issue in WinScp 556.

Re: Destination File to be Overwritten displays incorrectly

Thanks for your report.

This was actually fixed already:

Can you send me an email, so I can send you back a development 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.

You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile.
