I work with files checked out from the same source control repository, both on my laptop and on a remote machine. Since the files are checked out at different times, their timestamps are different.

This means that when I attempt to synchronize my local directory with the remote one, the option to check Modification time is useless (as it would always report different modification times). "File size" may fail if I just change one character in a file (quite frequent for version numbers, for instance).

It would be great if WinSCP had an option to do a binary comparison (CRC) when running Synchronize.

Thanks for your post. This issue is being tracked already.

Anyway, cannot your source control repository client set the timestamp of the file to the last revision timestamp?
