I am a student at California Eastbay Hayward. Our mini project was to test certain features of WinSCP.
I was assigned to test:
A. Using WinSCP >> Changing properties (permissions, ownership, etc) of remote files.
An enhancement I found would be useful is that:
When the owner has set the permission settings for a file as 444 or 'r--r--r--', then the 'Edit' option (context menu) for this file should be disabled since this file is read only. If the owner does want to make changes he/she can always change the permission settings for the file. Can any one tell me if this is a valid enhancement or if my understanding is wrong.
B. Another enhancement under section: Using WinSCP >> Renaming Files.
Consider 2 files in a directory namely, "test1" & "test2". If I try to rename "Test1" as "Test2". I get a Confirm popup window appears with the prompt:
File Test2 already exists. Overwrite?. If I click on 'Yes' button another Error popup window with the following message is displayed:
Error renaming file Test1 to Test2.
Why not instead just display the error popup window instead of displaying a Confirm pop up window with Overwrite option. Since overwrite option does not work anyway.
I am not sure if these are valid enhancements. Thanks for taking the time to go over these proposals
