Topic "Local Syncronisation - Nothing to Synchronise"

Author Message


I have written a script to synchronise a local directory with a remote FTP directory.

The script runs fine but even though there are files in the remote directory the log shows the message. Any ideas?

Script example:-
synchronize local "C:\Directory 1\Directory 2\" "/RemoteDirectory/Sub Directory/"

> 2015-10-08 13:22:33.157 Script: synchronize local "C:\Directory 1\Directory 2\" "/RemoteDirectory/Sub Directory/"
< 2015-10-08 13:22:33.173 Script: Comparing...
. 2015-10-08 13:22:33.173 Collecting synchronization list for local directory 'C:\Directory 1\Directory 2\' and remote directory '/RemoteDirectory/Sub Directory /', mode = 1, params = 2
< 2015-10-08 13:22:33.173 Script: Nothing to synchronize.
> 2015-10-08 13:22:33.173 Script: exit
. 2015-10-08 13:22:33.173 Disconnected from server

If that does not help, please attach a full log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate log file, use /log=path_to_log_file command-line argument. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.

And tell us what files you believe should be synchronized, but are not.
