When I drag a file from my local desktop into the remote Explorer view, it will successfully copy the file. If I then delete the file in the remote view, and then drag the file again from my local desktop into the remote Explorer view, it will say "Remote file already exists. Overwrite?".

Since I just deleted the file, it should not already exist!

As a side note, the first time I drag the file from my local desktop to the remote Explorer view, it copies over fine but it does NOT show up in the explorer view.. I have to hit Refresh to get it to appear.

Thanks

Using GUI v4.2.7 build 758 with SCP in Explorer view on Win XP Pro sp3.

Can you describe the steps you do in more details? Step by step.
E.g. Where exactly do you drop the files? How do you delete the file? Does it disappear from the remove view after you delete it?

I grab the file from my Windows Desktop, and I drop it in the remote file panel area (not the tree area though) of the explorer view. The transfer appears to be succesful, but I have to click refresh to get it to display.

Yes, when I delete it, it disappears.

I have changed a lot of settings, for example, double-click copies to desktop, background transfers on, etc, so I am attaching my wincsp.ini file:

Just upgraded to v4.2.8 (portable) and issue is still there.

I have narrowed the problem down to the following preference option:
Transfers > Background > Transfer On Background By Default

When the above option is not selected, then the issue does not occur, so it has something to do with background transfers.

Hope this helps pinpoint the problem.

Thanks

OK, just to update for everybody...

The reason the file would not refresh automatically after upload is because
Environment > Directories > Directory Reading Options > Cache Visited Remote Directories
was UNchecked ... checking this option solved the problem.

The other issue with it asking to overwrite a file that was deleted is an actual bug that is now in the tracker here:
