I am new to WinSCP and even WinSCP script. I tried to run the script as follows.

option batch on
option confirm off
open sftp://[username]:[password]@[ftp-server]:222/ -hostkey="ssh-rsa 4096 xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx"
synchronize local D:\Eddie\work2 /_V6_/b5/media/presskit
exit

And it always return "Nothing to synchronize" and my local directory is empty.

Attached is the log file (I replace all sensitive data with xxx). Please forum administrator can help me. Thanks.

Regards,
Eddie

Thanks.

No. Your local directory contains all files that remote directory does:

Please attach a full session log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate the session log file, use /log=path_to_log_file command-line argument. 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.

You have "Existing only" synchronization option enabled in global configuration:

In general, you should use /ini=nul switch to isolate the script from GUI configuration:
