Hi Michael,

Thks for this clarification, I had not realized the lack of supported compress programs on Windows. Although I did successfully install bzip2 on mine this morning, I'll acknowledge a typical install would miss it.

Pscp does not support multi-hops, so it's a longer process for the user who needs the file to be copied as root. Worth it for a 100 MB file, but not so much for a few MBs. I have no idea how much compression improves the process, but if it was implemented in Tramp, it's probably because it's worth it?

Best regards,

Supported compress programs are gzip, bzip2, xz, zstd and compress. I
doubt, that any of them runs on MS Windows.

For a 100MB log file, I rather recommend to use pscp than plink.
