Using WinSCP (4.1.9 build 416) I am not able to move files to a new external USB drive from my remote linux server. I did read that system normally won't allow moves to different file systems, but both are formatted as ext3. I can perform the same move via commandline ssh (using mv). Using winscp, I'm able to duplicate the files to the USB drive.
If I can do it in ssh commandline, how come it won't work in WinSCP? I am logged in as root as well.

OS on the remote server is Debian 4.0. When I attempt, i get the error
General failure (server should provide error description).
Error code: 4
Error message from server: Failure
Request code: 18

From the logging:

It is not about file system type, but actual physical file system (read "drive").

Well, that's rather a question for those who implement the "mv" command and your SFTP server.
