I'm using WinSCP 4.2.9 to sftp files from my Windows 7 workstation to a Win 2008R2 server running Sysax sftp server service. I want to script the process so I have set up a session named Purple from the GUI to synchronize from my workstation to the remote server using sftp v5. I have unchecked the permissions and Preserve timestamp boxes in Preferences/Transfer. When I give the command to synchronize remote, it copies the next new file in the local folder and then stops with the following error. Filezilla is the next new file in the list:

FileZilla_3.3.4.1_win32-s | 4100 KiB | 1651.1 KiB/s | binary | 100%
Upload of file 'FileZilla_3.3.4.1_win32-setup.exe' was successful, but error occurred while setting the permissions and/or timestamp. If the problem persists, turn on 'Ignore permission errors' option.
The server does not support the operation.
Error code: 8
Error message from server:
Request code: 9
(A)bort, (R)etry, (S)kip, Ski(p) all: Abort

What am I doing wrong?

I should also say that I have tried:
synchronize remote -nopreservetime -nopermissions

but that results in the same activity - i.e. 1 file is copied and the error previously described comes up.

For synchronization, preserving the timestamp is implicit, it cannot be turned off. Otherwise synchronization cannot work (the next time).
