Topic "Copying files from remote side failed"

Author Message


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.
