## PowerShell Synchronize mode 'Both' with Transfer Options

I am struggling to include $TransferOptions when using Synchronize mode 'Both'. I looked through loads of documentation but just couldn't figure out how to make it work in powershell. Thanks for the support! Here is a snippet of modified code based on the included 'KeepLocalUpToDate' extension.  Write-Host "Connecting..."$session.Open($sessionOptions) #Setup Transfer Options$transferOptions = New-Object WinSCP.TransferOptions
$transferOptions.ResumeSupport.State = [WinSCP.TransferResumeSupportState]::Off$TransferOptions.FilePermissions =  New-Object WinSCP.FilePermissions
$TransferOptions.FilePermissions.Octal = 0777 #$TransferOptions.FileMask = "|*.jpg;*.txt"

while ($True) { Write-Host "Synchronizing changes..."$result =
$session.SynchronizeDirectories( [WinSCP.SynchronizationMode]::Both,$localPath, $remotePath,[WinSCP.SynchronizationCriteria]::$TransferOptions )

## Re: PowerShell Synchronize mode 'Both' with Transfer Options

I have possible similar syntax problems related to FileMask, or the method is not implemented for [WinSCP.SynchronizationMode]::Both

Code snippet:

        # Connect
$session.Open($sessionOptions)

#Transfer options
$transferoptions = New-Object WinSCP.TransferOptions -Property @{ FileMask = "| temporary.wav" } # Synchronize files$synchronizationResult = $session.SynchronizeDirectories( [WinSCP.SynchronizationMode]::Both, "E:\data\em", "/usr/local/em",$false, $transferoptions) But I get the error: Error: Exception calling "SynchronizeDirectories" with "5" argument(s): "Cannot mirror files in synchronization mode Both" Transfers work without the$transferoptions in the $session.SynchronizeDirectories() but I need to exclude the transfer of specific files/types from ever being transmitted. I also tried using the syntax from the OP for the transferoptions with the same resulting error. mixolydian Joined: Posts: 2 Location: USA ## Re: PowerShell Synchronize mode 'Both' with Transfer Options I figured it out. I did not address the required passing of the parameters in the$session.SynchronizeDirectories() statement between the 4th parameter that I set as false and the transfer options, which would be the transferoptions, which would be the 7th parameter. I did not really understand what you meant with your response to the OP with you example. After time to review I based it on your example and wallah!!!
Fix:
# Synchronize files
$synchronizationResult =$session.SynchronizeDirectories(
[WinSCP.SynchronizationMode]::Both, "E:\data\em", "/usr/local/em", $false,$false, [WinSCP.SynchronizationCriteria]::Time, \$transferoptions)

I considered deleting the post but figured someone else may have the same confusion.
I really loved the .Net Assembly / COM Library!
