Topic "Copied file results in a 0 byte file"

The file in question is 818 bytes when detached (saved) from a Lotus Notes email to a directory on my PC. The file has been edited from a larger file to contain the desired test data, using Notepad. When I attempt an F4 Copy or a drag and drop from my PC to a Unix server, the copied file ends up to be 0 bytes. I've tried text and binary mode with no difference. One other person that has tried it has the same problem. However, another person in our company copied it fine. A few have suggested a possible authorization problem. However, I'm able to copy other files to the same directory on the same Unix box.

What is your WinSCP version? Version 3.4.1 had same problem as you describe, when uploading files smaller than 4 kB.
