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


        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.
