I'm currently using WinSCP 5.7, but this problem has occured in earlier versions as well. What happens is that when I have a larger file structure (current project file structure has 279 directories) and try to use "Keep remote directory up to date" it starts out fine, but as soon as I make any change to any local file WinSCP will start running through every file and directory and outputting "Change in [directory/file] detected." I even compare and synchronize the directories before and it shows that there are no differences found. This problem seems to only occur when I'm watching large directories because when I use it on projects with ~10 or so directories it works fine.

I am connected through SFTP and using the options "Delete Files", "Update Subdirectories", and "Synchronize on start" and transfer settings are set to default. Anyone have a solution to this issue?
