24 hours later I don't want to see an ERROR message saying "Error transferring file"

I appreciate the product and thank you, really... BUT...

An error that is almost always a momentary failure, which with just one click on 'Retry' and everything is back to the normal proceeding...

24 hours later nothing is done because I was sleeping so I couldn't click on the 'Retry' button?!

This is really nonsensical... Why can't you automatically refresh something so that it doesn't wait for a'RETRY' command from me hours later?

Waste of so much time...

Please attach a full session log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate the session log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.

An option (checkbox) to retry single errors (N number of times) would be nice.
An option to continue on error (keep transferring other files) would be nice.


But even Windows file copy locally which ought to be perfected by now still has a terrible UI and speed. So can't blame this WinSCP too much!!

None of this really related. This happens in every FTP host site, with different IP addresses, and the operation in question is just downloading! And the issue is nor user initiated.
I start the download and sometime in next minutes or other times in hours, it happens.
I will provide three messages here. They all waited for me to arrive to click on the 'Continue' button. Then it resumed right away. This issue also occurs while I attend the process and then which I click the 'Continue' button immediately and so it does...
Thank you
Description: The files are small but three of them in there. I could have provided many more.
Besides the lack of 'saving the progress' function, this program is wonderful.

I realized now that the Note was cut of...

So here it is in full version... :)

But findings hours later that your huge transfer failed 20 minutes after you left the room and to continue all you need to do was to hit the 'Continue' button is a very painful acknowledgment...

To be honest, for me, If that fixed I believe I would have no excuse to not donate...
