Topic "List index out of bounds (0)"

Author Message


I try to download some files from a server, but it stops on certain files and says:

Copying files from remote side failed.
List index out of bounds (0)

It only occures when I use sftp, with scp it works fine. There's another strange thing with sftp connections. File sizes are abnormal like:


like if they were so big that normal form is needed to display their sizes.

Any help would be appreciated.

I haven't seen the problem before. Do you see the file-size problem with all files? What is your SSH/SFTP server?

I would like to ask you to enable SFTP protocol logging and send me the log file. After you enable the logging, let WinSCP list a directory that shows the invalid file sizes. If you are able to reproduce the "List index out of bounds (0)" on demand, try it too. Send the log file to my email address.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation.


I've emailed the log file to you. Hope it helps.
