Transfer all new or newly modified files in the last x minutes

Hi,

I want to upload recently modified/created files to my web server via FTP.

I have tried using the command below in a script:
put -resume -preservetime -filemask=>60N "C:\source\*.*" "/destination/"
Some files are transferred, some are not. This missed files that were modified in the last 60 minutes.

However, if I put the app into keepuptodate mode, all modified files are uploaded.

I can't really understand what I am doing wrong when I try to upload manually using a script. The log does not indicate anything and seems to exclude files that were in fact modified. I have attached a modified log file.

Can you please advise what I might be doing wrong.
Thanks!

I do not see any "keepuptodate" in the log. Am I missing something?

I carried out the following steps:
  1. Ran following script:
    open ftp://mycredentials/
    put -resume -preservetime -filemask=>15N "C:\sourcefolder1\*.*" "/destinationfolder1/"
    get -resume -preservetime "/sourcefolder2/filename.csv" "C:\destinationfolder2\" 
    exit
    The log for this is in winscp 230317.log. The files created/modified were within the last 15 minutes.

  2. I then ran keepuptodate command by pressing Ctrl+U in the app.

    The log for this is in SLTUploadFiles 230317.log.
1. did not transfer the files, while 2. did.

Please advise what is wrong with the script.

Thanks!

In the winscp 230317.log log I see that the upload failed, because your server does not support "resuming", what conflicts with -resume switch. In general, you would not really use the -resume switch blindly. Remove it.

Thank you. That seemed to have worked. I clearly misunderstand the point of -resume. I thought it was a sensible measure to recover from a disconnection during a transfer.
