Topic "how to disable coping symbolic links?"

Author Message


I want to copy over a directory containg 208 folders that all contain various numbers of sub-directories (several of which are links pointing to directories).

I DO NOT want to copy over the linked directories when i drag the root folder over to my local directory.

is this possible???

WinSCP cannot do this. I believe it is impossible with SCP. SCP always copies symbolic links, there is no way to avoid it. With SFTP it is possible, but I have not implemented this yet.
