winscp skip or overwrite existing on synchronise on same directory.

Hi ..

I ran winscp under windows task scheduler synchronize with a remote ftp site.

The local folder is empty and there are 100 new files to synchronize with the local folder.
The task scheduler run winscp and it download one file at a time.

To speed up the synchronization with local folder, another application (winscp or filezilla) is later run to download the remaining files from the remote folder.
Hence that all 100 files are downloaded with 2 applications in progress.

However the winscp that run under task scheduler keep on going and is overwriting the files which has downloaded by the other application.

I wish if there is possible to enhance to re-check the existing of files to skip or overwrite in the options script "by Time or/and size" on the local directory.

Another feature I hope for an option to increase the max number of transfer (winscp run under windows task scheduler) instead of currently one.

Thank you.

David

This hardly combines with the overall concept of how the synchronization works in WinSCP.
And it would not be safe anyway.

That's very difficult to implement.
But you can implement it on your own using PowerShell and WinSCP .NET assembly.

For parallel transfers:

For selection of files that need synchronization, see:
