I've been getting this error on one of the folders with several files being uploaded to ftp server. Here's a snippet of the log.

Side note: Files in this folder are .trn and .bak files and seems to be uploading fine with the .trn files but always gets an error when trying to upload .bak files which is 2GB+ in file size.
ftp.txt (165 Bytes) Private file

Description: Script

ftplog.txt (4.11 KB) Private file

Description: snippet of the log file showing successful upload of .trn files then the error when trying to upload .bak file which is 2gb+ in size.

Try put \\backup\d$\SQLBACKUPS\SLSQL\ACPW_AppE\* -neweronly -resume

If that does not help, please attach a complete log file.

Tried your suggestion and so far it's working. I will try again next week 'cause I will have more back up files that can be uploaded. Also while waiting for the response I was trying another way of uploading files and I found out that SYNCHRONIZE works like a charm also.
