Topic "WinSCP uses max CPU when idle"

Author Message


When I edit a file from an SFTP-3 connection, WinSCP uses up 100% available idle CPU when it is idle. Foreground programs run fine, but background programs are starved. Even when I set process priority to Low, it still uses all available CPU.

Can you send me an email, so I can send you back a debug version of WinSCP to track the problem? Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have sent the email. Thanks.

You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile.
