Full Syncronization

I am new to IT and I have just started using WinSCP. I have to use SFTP as my protocol. I need instructions on how to automate uploading and downloading files. I am starting to work with batch files. Can anyone give me direction on obtaining detailed instructions on how to script this process?

Re: Full Syncronization

Full synchronization function will be in the next release. You cannot use WinSCP in batch files. Use rather some command-line tool, like PSCP or PSFTP.

full synchronization

I have a rather substantial directory tree that I would like to synchronize. Is it possible to set the program to synchronize all files within a root directory including all the files in the sub-directories.

I really like the realtime synchronizing of directories as well as the 'synchronize browsing' I have never seen that in any other sftp client, but I wonder if it is possible to schedule the synchonization for an off-peak time. I have found I get much faster data transfers when I am off peak and some of the files that I am working with are a couple of hundred megs.

thanks for your help,

This will be in next version (within few days).

Not yet. Maybe sometime :-)
