When I add a file from a remote folder with a lot of files (> 100) to the background download queue, I get this error message:

Timeout detected.
Could not retrieve directory listing
Opening ASCII mode data connection.
Error listing directory '/wwwroot/Logs'.

Why is WinSCP listing the folder? Why isn't it just downloading the file? WinSCP already has the full path to the file, so it should not be listing the folder. Could you remove the folder listing from file downloads?

I just downloaded WinSCP 4.34 and was unable to reproduce the error, so it may be resolved. I will test WinSCP tomorrow during heavy server load and post if I still receive the error!
