Read only - 2nd user editing permission

Hi All,

I am just wondering about if there is a chance how to set up the editing permission.
Found out, that in case more users are trying to open and edit the same file on the server, it is not givin any pop-up that the 2nd user is making changes. That's why I have notices we can miss, or overwrite any changes done by 1st user.

Is there any chance, how to set up winscp to get a pop up for 2nd user, that the file is already open and somebody else is editing that file? You know, the same way how it works with "Read only" due to file opened by another user same time.

Is there any chance how to do that? To avoid any overwrites?

Many many thanks.

Kind regards,
Peter

There's no way WinSCP can know that a file on remote server is being edited by another user.
All WinSCP can do is to warn you when saving the file that the file was modified meanwhile.
