re-read directory before copying

[farscp 142, far 1.70a6]
it seems that for copy/move operation winscp uses the cached list of files (at least for subdirectories), sometimes (F6) the results are absolutely disastrous, wouldn't it be better to re-read the directory (and subdirectories) automatically before copying?

How "disastrous"?

it copies everything it has in the cache but removes everything that is actually there (files were added to subdirectories by background jobes after the last ctrl-r), I mean if I try to move several directories from server to host and there are files in them added by the other programs, those are simply deleted not moved.

SCP or SFTP protocol? If SFTP, what is your server?
