My local PC (Windows XP SP2) is Mountain Daylight time
My remote server (Linux Centos 5) is Mountain Standard time. I was previously on an older linux version and having timestamp problems, so I thought I would upgrade the server before trying to get this finally working.
Running a BATCH script, if I synchronize a directory targeting the remote linux box, the timestamp is adjusted by two hours (not just one as I would expect). Eg:
Linux shows: 2003-06-28 11:46:41.000000000 -0700
Windows XP shows: Saturday, June 28, 2003, 1:46:41 PM
Note that the windows file "Created" time is today, and the "Modified" time is the actual last modification date (ie. 2003!).
The worst part is, if I again synchronize the same directory (with no modifications at all), ALL files are retransferred!
It would be nice to have a solution that does not break when DST changes again in the fall. These synchronizations can involve many many files, and as I have found out, winscp is not so fast at transferring a lot of individual files.
It seems to be amazingly difficult to get an rsync solution that functions between Windows and Linux... I have tried several and WinSCP seems to be the most stable, if only it would function correctly for Synchronization processing.
Any advice? Am I the only person trying to do this kind of thing? Sorry if I sound frustrated... I realize winSCP is not a commercial product, and I do appreciate all the work that has gone into it.
