file picked up before fully downloaded.

Hi All/Martin

I have Process-A which drops the files txt files to a directory. There is a scheduled task setup to execute WinSCP FTP file transfer every 5 mins.

Problem: it so happens once in a while there is an overlap the moment file is dropped and at the same time the task kicking in which seems to pick up the partial txt file and perform the FTP transfer. How to prevent the partial file transfer?

WinSCP 5.11.3

I did look into the documentation but not sure which feature I can use to restrict it.

Thank you
Sai

You might check out disabling transfer resume - I'm looking for a solution to this on a Session level, not at the root Preferences level for the entire application. See: https://winscp.net/eng/docs/ui_pref_resume

You can use a file mask to transfer only files which are e.g. older than few minutes.
See https://winscp.net/eng/docs/file_mask#size_time

Re: file picked up before fully downloaded.

Hi Martin,

I used the file mask as shown in the logs - put -filemask=*.hl7>3H * (so include files modified before 3 hrs from current time.)
There were two files in the directory
1. "New Text Document.hl7" 26-Aug-2019 8:51 pm (date modified)
2. "test3.hl7" 05-Sep-2019 2:53 am (date modified)

Ran script 3:23 am so, test3.hl7 should have been skipped.
it skipped the 'New Text Document.hl7' file not sure why.. it should be the other way round I would think.

Ideally I would want to copy all files that were modified 2 minute ago ( making sure its downloaded fully before transferring).

Re: file picked up before fully downloaded.

Can you attach a full log file, using the latest version of WinSCP?

Hi Martin,
My current ver. 5.11.3; will upgrade have any issues with the existing simple command line scripts? Just wanted to make sure.. and I should be able to use the Help->check for upgrades and update it directly which will keep all my settings? Let me know thanks ! Sai.
