Topic "Downloaded file content is different from the original one"

Author Message


Hi all,
we found that some records into some downloaded files are different
from the original files.
Seems like the download process has edited the content
changing the structure and the data of some lines Shocked!
Because of this weird behaviour, we made a test using other ftp clients.
Comparing all the files obtained,
the files downloaded with the others client are identical while those from WinSCP presents some differences.

What could produce a similar behaviour? Do we have to set a particular encoding or perform other actions?

Thank you very much in advance
