temp file not deleted on unix when transfer cancelled

Hi,

I had a file left over on unix when I cancelled a transfer.

I think the file I was copying already existed on unix with permissions such that WinSCP would have copied to a temp file before removing the existing one.

When I canceled the transfer it forgot to remove the temp file.

I had a quick search in the forum but didn't find anything about this.

Thanks,
Danny.

If you mean the file with ".filepart" extension, it is by purpose, to allow you to resume the transfer later. You can disable this in preferences.

Hello! Can we have an option to delete filepart only if user voluntarily pressed "Cancel"?
User case: I want to keep the resume feature for transfers which were ended unexpectedly, but don't want to keep it for transfers cancelled by me.
