We are trying to copy a file from Windows7 to a Windows server
The problem is that we always get an error.
We are trying to copy to a remote location called 'ROOT:/TEST'
But on the error it seems to add the directory name twice
ex: instead of 'ROOT:TEST/Test_sftp.txt.txt'.,
we see 'ROOT:/TEST/ROOT:/TEST/Test_sftp.txt.txt'.

This is the error we see in the log:
Cannot create remote file 'ROOT:/TEST/ROOT:/TEST/Test_sftp.txt.txt'.
. 2015-01-14 09:51:48.974 Error code: 3
. 2015-01-14 09:51:48.974 Error message from server: Permission denied

Would you know why the directory name is listed twice?

I try another PC and it worked with the same release of WinSCP .. Same version and same URL and same accounts

I noticed that the SFTP-5 tab on the server side indicated
that the SSH Implementation was different:
One was OpenSSH_4.6 and the other was Vshell_3_5_4_630
Any ideas why ?

PC that does not work:
File transfer protocol: SFTP-5
Session Protocol: SSH-2
SSH Implementation: OpenSSH_4.6
Server host key: ssh-rsa

PC that worked:
File transfer protocol: SFTP-5
Session Protocol: SSH-2
SSH implementation: Vshell_3_5_4_630
Server host key: ssh-dss

Please attach a full log file showing the problem from both PCs (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.
