Re: Copying files from remote side failed

Thanks for your report.
I have sent you an email with a debug version of WinSCP to address you have used to register on this forum.

Copying files from remote side failed

I was running a long sftp copy on a Windows 8.1 laptop with the lid closed and the power connected. The remote side went to sleep, and I saw this error message when I opened the lid.

The program should have instead gone through the normal retry process.

Given the nature of memory access issues, this might indicate a serious security flaw.

WinSCP 5.5.1

Error message:
Copying files from remote side failed.
Invalid access to memory.
