What am I not doing that I should be doing?
Thanks for your help...
What version of WinSCP are you using (have you tried the latest one)? Does the same thing happen with SCP? Does it happen in both directions (upload/download). When you transfer file back is original size restored? Also log file can be useful. Thanks.
What you describe seems exacly like ASCII (text) transfer. File size differs because the end-of-line sequence on Windows is two characters (bytes) long, while the UNIX uses only one character (byte). So during upload, a file should get smaller and vice versa.
However, in you first post, you referring to Binary transfers as well. Please check if this happens also with this type of transfer. It should not. And I would bet that it does not.
With FTP, the file size changes too for ASCII (text) mode.That's why you make the big money, Martin! I have used a number of FTP applications and have never witnessed the bigger/smaller file differential before.
WinSCP is modestly different than those and it is to be expected that certain aspects of its use would be different, as well.
