Topic "2 GB limit on file transfer size"

First off, I think WinSCP rocks, and Kudos to you Martin.

I have no difficulty using WinSCP to transfer files up to 4 GB (haven't actually tried over the 2^32 limit) from a remote Linux server to my WinXP PC. But I just ran into trouble transferring from the PC to a laptop running Linux on my home network. It stops at 2^31-1 bytes (about 2 GB). Any way to continue the transfer? to prevent this happening in future? The ".filepart" is sitting there ready to be appended...

Best,
Andrew

I'm currently not aware of such problem with SFTP protocol. What SSH/SFTP server is running on your Laptop?

I had the same thing happen. You just re-copy the file - ie drag it across again. It asks if you want to use the filepart, say yes, and everything works!

I have done several tests with 3GB files and I had no problems with them. So it seems like server-side problem, providing that you've used the latest version of WinSCP. What is your SSH/SFTP server?
