I am trying to download a large amount of symlinked files in a directory. The symlinks are to other files below the chroot level of the ftp user, and I can access them via like using a web browser or using command line ftp.
I get the error:
Could not retrieve directory listing
Opening ASCII mode data connection for file list
Error listing directory '/batch 1-7'.
Error calculating size of directory '/batch 1-7/'.
I suspect that it is taking too long to report the size of the directory and WinSCP bails? It takes firefox like a few minutes to generate a full directory list of this ftp folder.
I don't know where winscp logs to, but I'd be happy to provide a logfile if you direct me.
