Re: WinSCP Transferring 0 byte, empty files

This commonly happens if you run out of space on the server.
If that's not the case, please attach a full log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.

Do you have the same problem with other FTP clients?

WinSCP Transferring 0 byte, empty files

I have small byte count .php files I need to update.
I have access to the server. I download the files to
my desktop and change the file. When I upload, they
are always 0 byte empty files.

Why? Help!
