Topic "Keeping remote directories up to date"

Hi,

I've just started using winscp, and I'm really interested in the "keep remote directory up to date" option. This, if worked reliably, would be pretty cool. But I found this doc: https://winscp.net/eng/docs/task_keep_up_to_date and this info:

WinSCP must know the correct timestamps of remote files, to avoid losing data.

The question is: is this really true? I'm working on a plenty of websites on different servers. Setting and testing the time offset for every server would take a week Smile

I'm also a C++ developer making software for Windows OS. I do remember, that when we register for notifications about changes in file system, we can catch that a file was modified/added/deleted etc, so why does winscp need timestamp correction?

Oh, and by the way - when I'm working on a given session, how do I edit current session options?

You cannot do that. You can only change the stored session setting and reopen the session.
