File transfers without prompts

I'm trying to find how to setup file transfers so that only new and newer files transfer without a prompt, and everything else anything else gets the prompt.
I setup WinSCP many years ago, and a couple of things have happened since:
1. I've lost most of my skills to age-related memory loss
2. My Windows (10) had a forced refresh, losing my WinSCP settings…
I've looked through the settings/preferences but haven't found a timestamp-related choice (but I'll probably find as soon as I've posted this, as usually happens)
I don't want to completely suppress the prompts (upload/download), just to protect me from overwriting a newer version (which admittedly is nearly always the same, or newer on the local system)

It's the "overwrite confirmation" dialog that I'm thinking of. Perhaps I'm thinking of other applications, offering "overwrite only if new/newer".
There's a dropdown on the "Yes" choice, so I suspect there may be choices in there.
Unfortunately, SFTP to my website host is currently denied, so I cannot experiment.
