We are using a current version of the PowerShell version of WinSCP. I have not been able to determine from the documentation if the WinSCP.Session.GetFiles method is synchronous or asynchronous.

We are transferring files in a batch. After the batch has transferred files, the files are to be moved to a remote directory. Occasionally, the MoveFile method fails for individual files in the batch. We have checked and the permissions on the file are all the same.

Synchronous. That's the default. I do not think there's any point mentioning that a method is synchronous. Majority is.

If you have problems, attach a session log file.

To generate the session log file, set Session.SessionLogPath. 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.

Btw, did you check that you are not trying to move the file over an existing file?
