Rsync

Maybe an option for use of rsync over ssh (rsync -e ssh) for transfers. This would solve the resume transfer problem and it would significantly improve speed.

13 years later, are there any plans to support rsync transfers?

My connection is terrible and I need to upload as few bytes as possible so rsync's partial/delta uploads would be great for this.

If not, can you please recommend any other software which might help do this for me?

Thank you.

Have you tried
cwrsync
? I have not. I hoped to find rsync in
UnxUtils
or
gow
which is (Ithink) a superset of UnxUtils. But those project do not include rsync.

The
cwrsync
project claims to be open source, and has a free version. Its Win32 binary links against cygwin libraries rather than requiring all of cygwin, by the way. <invalid hyperlink removed by admin>

I use UnxUtils only so I cannot give you a clear recommendation.

rsync

If it could be used in "Custom Commands" that would be super helpful... or if you could make a few options in custom commands that will allow "prep commands" and xargs into normal scp transfer that would be a second, workable option.

scp doesn't have enough filtering options. if we can supply an xargs list then we can overcome that. it wouldn't take much to make a /tmp/winscp/!N/[CommandName]_[timestamp].xrg where a list of paths will go and then subsequently be fed into scp by xargs. if this is possible features such as resume and symlink traversal options become possible. with enough && this will work as a default "Custom Command" in winscp. for example, /tmp/winscp/!N/[CommandName]_[timestamp].xrg.prog could contain lines processed. Progress is then

number of lines in (1 - (number of lines in /tmp/winscp/!N/[CommandName]_[timestamp].xrg.prog) divided by (number of lines in /tmp/winscp/!N/[CommandName]_[timestamp].xrg.prog) ) * 100

where !N is the session name or other unique id

Thanks for your suggestion.
Will see if more people ask for this.
