"Bad Message" Error Transferring File from VMware ESxi 6.5

Hello,

I have a VMware ESXi 6.5.0 server with SSH enabled. I am attempting to use WinSCP to transfer a particular virtual disk file (named easylinux.prestige.local-flat.vmdk).

I am able to transfer any other file I have tried on this host machine. However, when I try to transfer this one file, I receive the following error: "Bad message (badly formatted packet or protocol incompatibility). Error code: 5. Error message from server: Bad message."

I have looked online but cannot seem to find any solution that relates to this specific scenario. Any help you could provide in correcting this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Tom

Can you download that file using any other SFTP client?
