Hello, I would like some clarification. I've red about the SCP 4GB limitation but I'm able to copy files bigger than 35GB (vmdk files) in the GUI. When I script it only some of the files are copied??? It seems it's prompting me but I don't know for what. Some guidance would be appreciated. Thanks

scheduled command
C:\PROGRA~1\WinSCP\WinSCP.exe /console /script=WinSCP_Script_esx2.txt /log=c:\progra~1\WinSCP\esx2.log

I think it is hardly possible. Can you post a SCP log file showing that (from GUI)?
