Topic "Cannot transfer 0 byte files"

Author Message

When trying to copy files of 0 bytes, WinSCP appears to fail and abort the entire transfer process. It's not that I need the 0 byte files, and the workaround would be to sort by size... but it's nice to have the empty files there so that I know that they're empty.

The exact error message is: "Received incomplete data packet before end of file."

WinSCP version 3.7.6 build 306

Can you post a log file (on level debug 2) showing upload of the empty file?
