file XXX.x in the future
I've noticed since the last update of VisualGDB that its having a bit of trouble with the timestamp of files and keeps throwing up Stderr warnings about files being in the future.

This is annoying and might be a bug in the new download system of VisualGDB, though it does not seem to stop files being sent to the target it probably sends them repeatedly, but there's an easy fix

In visual studio, go to Tools->VisualGDB->SSH Host Manager

Then find and highlight your device and select edit settings.

Change Transfer folders using .... from On-the-fly Tar to File-by-file SCP(slow)

don't worry about the slow warning, its not really slow

Now files don't throw up that timestamp error.. I've mentioned it to sysprogs

When you create a new project be sure to specify SCP transfer and you will never see this issue.
