Data moved using 'Move to' option to a remote harddisk not seen!!!

Please help !!!

I was trying to move offline oracle tablespaces from Linux VM server to a hard disk connected to the VM server using the 'Move to' option. I gave the Target remote path as well (please find attached).

I got a small window showing the files begin moved.

But i cannot see the moved tablespaces in my Harddisk and the table spaces from the parent directory is gone but there is one file and the file name is the path of the target location.

The total size of the tablespaces were 300GB , now i am left with a single file of 203 MB in the source directory.

Is my data gone ? or is there anyway i can retrive it ?

Re: Data moved using 'Move to' option to a remote harddisk not seen!!!

You moved all the files over each other.

So yes, you lost the data.

What version of WinSCP are you using?

In the latest version, you would get a warning, if you tried to do this.

Are you sure you want to transfer multiple files to a single file 'IWTM ARCHIVE DATA' in a directory '...'?

The files will overwrite one another.

If you actually want to transfer all files to a directory '...', keeping their name, make sure you terminate the path with a slash.

And anyway, you have used a wrong function. I believe you wanted to move the files to a local folder (function "Download and Delete"), not to a different remote folder (function "Move To"; note the box label "Target remote path")

This is not the right forum to ask such question. But I'm afraid that generally you are out of luck.
