wrong looking log-file

hi there!

my problem: i want to download and remove (get -delete) some files from a sftp server. ok so on that works very fine.
my problem is, that my logs are looking very unreadable. i another post here in the forum i saw an log, which would satisfy me much.

https://winscp.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6665

i'm starting the winscp session in a bat file with

WinSCP.com /console /script=scriptfile.txt /log=logfile.txt

my scriptfile is the following:

_____________________

option batch on

option confirm off

open user:pw@host

cd directory

get -delete *.* localpath

cd ..

cd newdirectory

get -delete *.* newlocalpath

exit
___________________


hm and my logfile is very huge O:-)

could anybody help me or give me a hint to get a logfile looking like that one in the other topic?

Re: wrong looking log-file

I do not see any lost in the thread you link. There's just a captured output of the script console.

Have you checked XML logging?

hi and thanks for your reply!

i want a logfile which is looking like:

date and time
connection succesfull
get file 1 100%
delete file 1 sucessfull

.. file 2 ..
.. file 2 ..

file n


the script is starting about every hour and the new log should be integrated in the old log file.


i have read the xml logging docu three times and tried to get some infos by google, after some tries a stopped finding a working solution :(
Otherwise i think i can't use xml logging, because there are some other operations from the batchfile which are logged too. I wish they are in the same logfile like winscp-logs.

Sorry for my bad english and chaotic writing.

greetings - andreas

This is contained in XML log.

Post example how your output from cmd.exe looks like for file transfers.
