There is no exact limit, but :!: :
  • If you upload/download file in ASCII mode, it is first loaded into memory and converted. So you must have enough memory to fit whole file there. However this should not be problem, because text files don't get too large.
  • There's still old upload problem, that causes WinSCP to "send" file faster than your connection is able to really transfer it. This causes file to be cached in memory too, especially with slower connections. This happens only while uploading. The bug should be fixed with next version.

I understand, thanks! By the way, Klaus Birringer of Vienna has successfully chroot()'ed WinSCP using the instructions provided in post "WinSCP chroot()" thus duplicating my effort here. :D

Version 2.1 beta #119 should fix this problem.
