Topic "question on batch transfers"

Author Message

I am running a nightly batch that pulls a file from WinSCP most nights it works correctly but occasionally i get this error occasionally:


transfer binary
file.dat | 0 KiB | 0.0 KiB/s | binary | 0%
Can't open file 'X:\..\SFTP\WinSCP\Data\file.dat'.
System Error. Code: 32.

The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process
(A)bort, (R)etry, (S)kip, Ski(p) all: Abort

I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts on how this error might occur, I have tried holding the file open but since the file while transferring is a different type that causes nothing. I have tried deleting the file from the WinSCP server in mid transfer but that causes no error. I have pulled the internet out of my computer that causes no error. I get a different error if the file already exists. If any one has any thoughts or if they know how I can go to a different section of the batch if an error is experienced since after the transfer I delete the file it would be very appreciated. Thanks

It looks like the file is being created by another local application at the same time, WinSCP is trying to access it.
