Moving the file at the Junction's target instead works as normal

Thanks for your report. Though I cannot reproduce the problem. I have created the junction using:
mklink /J c:\path\to\junction c:\path\to\target

Can you share more details? What version of Windows? What version of WinSCP? Does it matter what kind of a file you are dragging? Can you drag the file successfully from any other application? Etc. Few screenshots can help too.

I picked a txt file - I think that's the most basic type.

I have been using that Junction normally in explorer.exe. Or, I am not sure what you mean, everything else dragging-wise seems to work, except to the Junction.

Screenshots of what? Me dragging the file or explorer.exe crashing? 😕

I do not keep a record of build numbers. Can you tell me WinSCP version?
A screenshot showing where exactly do you drag the file from and where do you drop it to.
