Scripting SFTP mput shows the files transferred in rounded KB and need it in bytes.

I’m doing a WinSCP SFTP connection on a Windows 2019 server from a batch file. (scripting/automation)

WinSCP 5.17.10 (Build 11087) This is my first time using WinSCP.

I need to see the file sizes transferred in bytes. I found a way to change the GUI to display in bytes, but I don’t see an option for command line.

Below are examples of Windows native FTP and WinSCP SFTP. Windows FTP shows the exact file size in bytes where WinSCP looks like it rounds the values.

For example the first file in each example is 1212 bytes but WinSCP shows it as 1 KB.

==> Windows native FTP from a batch file:
ftp> mput f:\edi\ediprd\appi\g53\nps867\prd\GOOD867*.txt

150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for GOOD867-CNT20210421141136.txt

Sorry, WinSCP scripting cannot display the transfer progress in bytes.

Re: Scripting SFTP mput shows the files transferred in rounded KB and need it in bytes.

Sorry I'm new to WinSCP forum. Is this the correct place to request a enhancement?

It sounds like there was a need for it because the GUI has an option to display in bytes.

It would be very helpful for scripting to do the same. We use bytes in trouble shooting to verify exactly file was sent.
