Q: How can I disable automatic backups for get/put commands?


A: There are two ways to do this:


1. Set ‘autobackup = off” in the global hsirc or user’s private .hsirc file



2. set “backup = off’, either for the current session, or on the ‘get’ or ‘put’ command:

    

       set backup = off   (or just “backup = off” without the “set")

       put someFile


 or

        put backup=off someFile



Note that on both the ‘get’ and  ‘put’ commands, using the ‘-t’ option, which specifies retrying a previously failed transfer, will automatically disable renaming an existing file.
