Re: I get duplicate files when transferring a folder
You possibly have two files on remote folder with the very same name except for a case. Your server may have case-sensitive files systems. Windows does not. So when downloading "file.txt", followed by "File.txt", the first one gets overwritten. _________________ Martin Prikryl
That's one of the things I thought of and it accounts for some of them.
But I get the same issue when transferring from my Windows computer to a Web server as well. Also there are many cases where I can't find the mixed case duplicates. Sometimes I think the software is transferring the same file more than once. But I'm not sure. Sometimes I think there may be more than one path leading to the same file so the software sees it as two files. But if there were to routes to the same folder it would get a duplicate warning for every file in the folder...
Please attach a full log file showing the problem.
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 may email it to me. You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile. Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have emailed the log. _________________ Martin Prikryl
