Topic "Drag-drop from remote to network drive often freezes?"

Author Message



I'm using WinSCP 4.2.9 build 938 on a Win7 Pro 32-bit machine. Transferring files from the company FTP to our drive-mapped network drives, WinSCP frequently freezes: the screen is completely white except for the title bar, and it doesn't respond to any user input during a couple of minutes. Maybe it's coincidence, but I shift-drag&drop lots of files to move them, but never had the issue using F6-Move. Admitted, I use F6 rarely. Whenever the freeze happens, the copy/move dialog doesn't show. All of a sudden the transfer starts, after quite a delay (>30s).

The FTP-server according to WinSCP is UNIX Type: L8, FTP without compression.
The network drives are for example N:\ which map to a share on our Windows 2003 server.

Has this been reported before?

Thanks in advance!
