Topic "Error Listing Directory"

Author Message



I've been trying to download a zip file to a local drive but it keeps showing "Error listing directory".
And I cant seem to figure out what is the problem as the file is in the correct directory.

Here is what I wrote for the .bat file and .txt file


cd D:\syncscripts
if 1 leq 2 (

set _my_datetime=%date%_%time%
set _my_datetime=%_my_datetime: =_%
set _my_datetime=%_my_datetime::=%
set _my_datetime=%_my_datetime:/=_%
set _my_datetime=%_my_datetime:.=_%

D:\WinSCP\winscp /script="D:\syncscripts\download_test.txt" /parameter D:\PCIOS_LOGS /opt/tacs/d/PCIOS/PCCAU_ARCHIVE_LOG/%date:~7,2%%date:~4,2%%date:~10,4%/
timeout /t 3600
goto :while1



# Being intended for interactive session, we are not enabling batch mode
# Connect
open PCIOS_session -rawsettings SendBuf=0
# Synchronize paths provided via environment variables
option batch continue
synchronize local -mirror -nopermissions -speed="20" -filemask="*.zip" -criteria="size" "%1%" "%2%"

Thanks for your help in advance!

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.
