Displaying size occupied by folders, and disk space remainin

Hello,

I searched the WinSCP documentation for this but could not find an answer, therefore I hope someone will be able to help. Is there any way to see what is the space occupied by a remote folder (i.e. on the FTP server), in kB/MB/GB? Some file managers (such as Total Commander) have this function when the Space Bar is pressed for a certain folder, but I noticed this does not work for WinSCP. I am not sure if the FTP protocol does not allow this or if this feature hasn't yet been implemented in WinSCP (in which case, may I put this down as a feature request?)

Also, is it possible to see how much space is still left available on the FTP drive?

Many thanks in advance for your help!

Hi Martin, thanks for your reply. Good to know this is already tracked - how about the question of seeing the available disk space that's still left on the FTP drive?

Also, I forgot to ask three more questions about WinSCP that I could not find an answer to myself:

- is it possible to copy files from one part of the remote drive to another, i.e. have the left side of WinSCP as remote, just like the right one?

- is there a way to have the File Name and File Extension columns separated (again, as in e.g. Total Commander)?

- I have a single profile defined, which is the only FTP server I connect to; is it possible to automatically connect to that profile when WinSCP is started?

Thanks again!

No you cannot have remote panel on both sides.
For copying see

No.

Thanks! I think the URL you referred me to for the question of copying files between two remote locations assumed that the two locations are different servers, whereas I meant transferring files from one folder of the remote FTP location to another folder of the same FTP server.

One more suggestion for the next version: it would be good if going from one directory to another refreshed the list of files. Currently, going up a level and then back to a folder will not make recently created/deleted files appear in the list (as happens in other FTP clients), and you need to use Ctrl+R
