Good afternoon...

I have been trying to make this work for over a week now with no luck.
I am new to this. I am running winscp 5.9

I wrote a few reports that need to upload to an sftp site on a daily basis.

first off can 5.9 have a way to automate this upload?

I try using the code generator, however i am unfamiliar with how to enter the code correctly, and even more so how to execute it afterwards.

I can add a batch file to the task scheduler. but what is the correct way to get this to synchronize?

@echo off

"C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCP.com" ^
/log="C:\writable\path\to\log\WinSCP.log" /ini=nul ^
/command ^
"open sftp:blah blah/ -hostkey=""ssh-rsa blah-blah""blah" ^
"Your command 1" ^
"synchronize remote C:\Blah-blah /to_blah
"Your command 2" ^
"exit"

set WINSCP_RESULT=%ERRORLEVEL%
if %WINSCP_RESULT% equ 0 (
echo Success
) else (
echo Error
)

exit /b %WINSCP_RESULT%

Your code is generally correct.

But obviously you need to
- Remove the placeholder lines "Your command 1" ^ and "Your command 2" ^.
- Use a real path for the log, not the placeholder path C:\writable\path\to\log\WinSCP.log

"synchronize remote C:\Files /to_bh" ^

the above string is giving me this...

when i use:

"synchronize remote"

how should the upload string look like...

i have now:

"synchronize remote" "C:\B*** H***\Files\ /to_bh" ^

which is grabbing the info but putting it in wrong directory

Ok after much trial and error... i figured out my batch script needs to be inside the folder i wish to sync...

however it still not placing it in the correct target folder, i need it to go to /to_bh

"synchronize remote"
"C:\to_bh\ /to_bh" ^

however it places the files on the outside of this directory no inside of the /to_bh.

what am i missing here?

No it does not have to.

I do not get the problem you describe with a script like:

Code:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCP.com" ^
  /log="C:\writable\path\to\log\WinSCP.log" /ini=nul ^
  /command ^
  "open sftp://username:password@example.com/ -hostkey=""ssh-rsa xx:xx""" ^
  "synchronize remote C:\Blah-blah /to_blah" ^
  "exit"


It works correctly (as expected).

Show us your current exact batch file.
