I'm running WinSCP 5.9.3 on a Windows Server 2008 R2 machine. Is there no way to have the Compare button in the GUI work recursively?

I'll start the GUI and connect to a remote WebDAV site. That's on the left side of the window. On the right, I'll navigate to the corresponding folder on my local machine. I then click on the Compare Directories button and it says No differences found. There are dozens of subdirectories, some of which I know do not exist on the local machine. There are also dozens, perhaps hundreds of files that also do not exist locally.

Do I have to manually navigate through every folder on the system to find all the differences?
