Is there a way to schedule jobs in WinSCP? I am connecting to a linux based vmserver, and I want to schdule a job to copy the files over once a week. I need them to go to a network drive.

I can do it manually just fine, but is there a way to have it done automatically?

Thank you

Seems fairly straight forward. The only thing I dont see is a way to copy files on the remote machine. Say it has 2 hard drives. I want to take a folder from drive 1 and move it to drive 2. Is that possible?

There's mv command for that. But some servers does not allow you to move files across file systems.

Well I did find a way:

call cp -a "/source path" "/destination path"

Thanks for your help.
