Is it possible to disable the "encrypt new file" feature when loading files to a SFTP via PS Script

as subject.

I have a powershell script that does the upload some pgp files to a SFTP site. the other party is having issues to open the pgp files and I noticed the winscp does "encrypt new file" by default. My question ... is it possible to disable the feature of "encrypt new file" in the powershell script? i believe there are some switch or command lines that I can specify in the powershell to disable it ?

my winscp version is 5.17.1 (build 10240).

Thanks for your help in advance.

I'm not sure I follow. WinSCP indeed has "Encrypt new files" option:

But that has nothing to do with PGP. Can you explain the relation to PGP?

yes, I noticed it has "encrypt new file" feature as a default option. I also know it has nothing to do with PGP files. My situation is that I use PowerShell script to initiate winscp to do the upload and my question is it possible to disable "encrypt new file" in the powershell script so winscp will do the job without the feature of "encrypt new file" ?

See https://winscp.net/eng/docs/rawtransfersettings#encryptnewfiles
$transferOptions = New-Object WinSCP.TransferOptions
$transferOptions.AddRawSettings("EncryptNewFiles", "0")
$session.PutFiles($source, $dest, $False, $transferOptions).Check()
WinSCP GUI can generate such code template for you:
