After editing and saving a remote file using an external editor, the local copy of the file will be automatically deleted when the session is closed. How to disable this deletion feature as i want to keep the local file?

I do not want to leave files in temporary folder. However, please tell me a reason you want to keep the local file, I may find other solution for you then.

The reason is that i just need a local backup copy of the edited file (automatically) without having to synchronise the local directory with the entire remote directory.

This feature synchronizes the whole directory whereas i need to synchronize only a single file.

Then I still do not understand what you do (i.e. how you are using WinSCP). Please tell me.
