Topic "Remote files deleted on transfer from Remote to Local"

Author Message


I've been using smartFTP and Filezilla for a while. I hadn't used WinSCP in a long time and decided to revisit. A lot of progress has been made. Gotta say, it has become my new favorite FTP client Smile

I'm having a small configuration problem. I want to be able to drag and drop files to my local computer. This works, but it then deletes the remote files. For some reason I can't find the setting to prevent the remote files from being deleted after the transfer takes place. Any clues?

What is your version of Windows? Have you read FAQ?

Thanks. It seems that sometimes drag and drop works with "Allow moving from remote directory to other applications" and sometimes it doesn't. I think that's why I turned it on at some point. Anyways, I'll have to wait and see when it stops working again and try to figure out why.
