Can't get attributes of file error during FTP download

I have a powershell script that I am useing and I cannot download a file. I recieve the error "Can't get attributes of file..." and inside my log file it says:

      <message>Can't get attributes of file '/ /download/100_MBytes.txt'.</message>
      <message>Could not retrieve file information</message>
      <message>SIZE: Not owner</message

But I am able to download the file using the GUI. What could cause this? I am using the path "/download/<filename>" but when I go into the GUI the root folder is just "/", could this be the cause of it? My other servers have the path "/home/...". I have attached my powershell script and my log file. Note: I have removed all of the login information due to it being confidential.

Re: Can't get attributes of file error during FTP download

Please attach a full session log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate log file, set Session.SessionLogPath. 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.

hi,

i'm having a similar problem. i'm downloading 2 files from ES File Explorer running on Android 5.0.2 to winscp 5.7.6 (5874) on win7. i'm downloading 2 files from the same directory. i'm using with bat files. one consistently works and the other fails. i have attached the 2 .bat files and the 2 winscp logs. the files both exist on the android and i don't think i have any typos. if necessary i can send the actual files. they are small.

john
Description: i put all logs and batch files here

There's no 20160120DataFromAndroid.txt in the /66DATA99/Input/BocceLog/ directory.

my mistake.

i'm generating batch files on the fly. to test i cut and pasted from another batch file which obviously had the wrong file name but correct date, so the asterisk worked based on a date hit.

again, my apologies.
