Change "Owner", "Group" for recursively.

Hi!
I need change recursively "Owner" and "Group" for folder X. But I not a need change CHMOD for folder X and sub-files/sub-folders. See screenshot, pls.

If you do not change the permissions on the dialog, WinSCP won't do any "chmod".

So, I have a folder test. Folder test have a sub folder and files.
I need change owner for folder test and sub folders and files. You know?
But when I change the owner, the attributes change too. :-(

After you check the "Set group, owner and permissions recursively", go to the "Permissions" and in theirs context menu select "Leave as Is".

Sorry for my late answer.

Re: Change "Owner", "Group" for recursively.

Sorry for picking up this older thread, but I'm running into the same issue and I cannot find any "Leave as is" option anywhere, has it been removed on the latest version 5.19.4? Or can you attach a screenshot, where to find it exactly? I'm also trying to change the owner of a directory recursively, but keeping the file permissions, as they are.

Thanks a lot!

@b4rt: You first have to check the "Set group, owner and permissions recursively", as my post above says. Did you?

@b4rt: It's the one at the bottom (Gruppe, ...). Once you check it, you will have the "Leave as is" option available in the Permissions box context menu.
