Topic "Losing text in CSV files"

I'm transferring small (2-3 KB) .csv files and the receiving server receives blank files that show the correct file size. I can replaicate this using WinSCP while other SFTP clients transfer the files w/o issue. I can't make WinSCP work correctly no matter what settings I change. Help?

Can you send me an email, so I can send you back a debug version of WinSCP to track the problem? Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have sent the email. Thanks.

I had a similar problem last week. Someone sent a file to an ftp server, and it showed a file size on the server, but when downloaded with WinSCP the file was 0 bytes.

Can you post a log file showing that?

Unfortunately there is no log. I had it turned on, but sometime/somehow it got turned off (just in time for this error). I've got it turned back on in case something else happens.
The same people sent a file again today, and everything worked like it should though.

Looking over the script, I believe what caused it was the get command. instead of using a wildcard as I have for other logins, I had a specific name. the script checks more than one folder for that file. Perhaps when it found the file, downloaded it, then looked in another folder and didn't find it, it wiped it out?

Hello we do have the same problem. Or at least I believe so.

We want to transfer files to an SFTP server and we somehow some lines of the file (csv) where cut. Then we tried with other extensions like jpeg or txt with always the same result.

While using Filezilla we did not face the problem ...

We want to use WINSCP in a script therefore it is somehow mandatory.

Thanks a lot for any hint.

As I heard now the target server is a Filezilla server and we are using FTPS instead of SFTP.
That may be the reason why Filezilla works ...
