Need some help with automation and i do not know scripting

Hello:)

So, i am a ccna/ccnp(5 years ago haha) and a mechanical engineer (current). With that said, I KNOW NOTHING OF PROGRAMING. IT MAKES ME CRY!!! physics and math is my thing. I tried programming and at the end of the semester, i was passed just so the professor wouldnt have to deal with me anymore haha

Anyway, I have setup a ssh server at home that i am currently using winscp as my client.

Here is my goal:
Have a local drive on my laptop that i use at school/work etc named "SFTP"
Have said folder on laptop auto sync when i save or drop a file into the sftp folder
If possible, have files that are in sftp folder just be on the server so they dont take up space on the laptop
have winscp autostart and login to accomplish said goals.

Thank you:) I have onedrive but i am trying to replace that.

You can use "Keep remote directory up do date" function.
In scripting, but also simply in GUI.
https://winscp.net/eng/docs/task_keep_up_to_date

But WinSCP cannot create a virtual folder that's actually stored on the server.
For that you would have to use a different tool.

Awesome:) thank you. I will get that setup. Now,is there a way to have winscp auto start and login?

When do you want it to "auto start"?

anytime the computer is powered on or wakes up is fine:)

I do have a passphrase on my private key, so if it asks for that eachtime, thats ok to.

Thanks
