Hi, I am new here, but I used WinSCP for many years. Since some months, I noted that the download of long files is very slow during the first half of the transfer. Typically, the transfer starts with somewhat more than 1 MBytes/s, but slows down to about 0.3 MBytes/s hereafter. When about 50% of the file is transferred, the speed may accelerate instantly to much more than 10 MBytes/s, so, the second half of the transfer is much much faster.
Today, I tested FileZilla and was really astonished to note a continuous and stable transfer speed of about 70 MBytes/s. Two .mp4 files, 33 GBytes in total, were downloaded in less than 8 minutes!. I tested a much shorter .mp4 with WinSCP hereafter but stopped when I noted again the slow transfer rate mentioned above.
Is there any reason for this boring behaviour of WinSCP?
I use SFTP.
