Can i configure .filepart with something else like .tmp when automatic transfer resume is enabled

Hi,

With SFTP protocol, when automatic transfer resume is enabled, WinSCP first uploads the file to a temporary file with .filepart extension. Only after the transfer is completed the file is renamed to its actual name.

Will winscp support changing/configuring ".filepart" with ".tmp" etc?

For eg: i'm uploading a file abc.pdf winscp first adds abc.pdf.filepart as temporary file and then renames to abc.pdf once uploaded succesfully. Instead can i confgure in such a way temorary file name would be "abc.pdf.tmp" instead of "abc.pdf.filepart"

Please correct me if my understanding is wrong.

WinSCP does not support this.

What is your use case? How would changing the extension help you?

Thank you for the reply Martin.

One of our client wants to add .tmp to all the files during uploading and remove .tmp after uploading of file is completed.
