WinScp 5.9.3 on Windows Server 2012R2

Hello experts,

I made a bat scheduled script running, in which it will check a sftp server to download file with winscp, and the code looks like:

%WINSCP_PATH%\ /log=%LOCATION_LOG% /command ^
       "open sftp://%FTP_USER%:%FTP_PASS%@%FTP_SERVER%/" ^
      "cd %LOC_FOLDER%" ^
      "get -transfer=binary *.zip %LOCATION_IN_FTP%\" ^
      "mv %LOC_FOLDER%/%%~ni.trg %LOC_ARC_FOLDER%/%%~ni.trg" ^
      "mv %LOC_FOLDER%/ %LOC_ARC_FOLDER%/" ^

Normally it works fine, but sometimes (only sometimes), it will hang up.
In the log file, I can see the exit was called:

. 2017-06-22 01:55:21.112 Copying 0 files/directories to local directory "/Integration/SrcFiles/JDE\loc\in\"
. 2017-06-22 01:55:21.112 PrTime: Yes; PrRO: No; Rght: rw-r--r--; PrR: No (No); FnCs: N; RIC: 0100; Resume: S (102400); CalcS: No; Mask:

> 2017-06-22 01:55:21.112 Script: exit
. 2017-06-22 01:55:21.112 Script: Exit code: 0
. 2017-06-22 01:55:21.112 Closing connection.
. 2017-06-22 01:55:21.112 Sending special code: 12
. 2017-06-22 01:55:21.112 Sent EOF message

But I can see winscp still running in the procecesses from the Task Manager, and the bat keeps running for more than 10 hours until I kill it the next day.

Why does this happen? and how can I avoid it?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your report.
I have sent you an email with a debug version of WinSCP to the address you have used to register on this forum.

I will download and have a try.
Thanks so much.

And also here's some more information:
I made 3 different batch files, runs every 5 minutes. And it normally hangs once after 3 or 5 days, and the last occurrence was 5 days ago. so very strange.

Anyway, I will try your version, and may take a long time to have the feedback.
