Files are uploaded in the order as they are presented by the operating system.

So generally the order is undefined, though the files are commonly sorted by a name.

There's no such option.
You would have to code it.
E.g. using a PowerShell script using WinSCP .NET assembly.
It should be pretty easy.

You start with these examples:
https://winscp.net/eng/docs/script_upload_most_recent_file
https://winscp.net/eng/docs/script_upload_file_list

And you modify the first like:

$files =
    Get-ChildItem -Path $localPath |
    Sort-Object LastWriteTime -Ascending

foreach ($file in $files)
{
    Write-Host ("Uploading {0} ..." -f $file.Name)
    $session.PutFiles($session.EscapeFileMask($localPath + $file.Name), $remotePath).Check()
}

Not tested!

Hi Supporter,

Thanks!
and one more question, when i upload some big zip file.
some time this process will be broken and system will re-upload auto.
in re-upload process, will the destination SFTP server have a broken zip file or not?

WinSCP wouldn't resume the transfer, if the result would not be a valid file. Of course the disconnect is an indication of some problem. So you never can be 100% sure. But there's just a small probability of a problem.
