Topic review


Re: Invalid access to memory

Are you able to reproduce the problem? 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.

You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile.

Invalid access to memory

After resuming a session that had disconnected a while ago it errored out as soon as it wanted to start downloading again. My guess is that it didn't wait for my HDD to spin up first since I could hear it spin up just after the error popped up (and it downloaded fine after continuing it just a few minutes later).

A follow up error is that it will not be able to continue the aborted download because it still "locks" the file in its process and can for some reason not override its own lock on it (thus not being able to modify/delete it until WinSCP is completely closed or a tool like Unlocker is used).

WinSCP 5.5

Error message:
Copying files from remote side failed.
