There are some features in WinSCP which can be replaced by recursive SSH commands. As far as I know till now there is only files duplication.
For example (often used by me):
1. Remove directory: instead of programmed recursion, use `rm -r "$DIR"`
2. Calculate directory size - `du -sh "$DIR"`
With many small files this can significantly reduce processing time.
What do you think?
Thanks for your attention ;)
