Files self deleting

I'm running version WinSCP 4.3.5 on Vista, SFTP into a Linux Server.

Opened files occasionally wipe themselves down to 0kb, and editing saves but doesn't change the file, nor show an error.
Deleting/creating a new file of the same name won't save, neither will copy/pasting the file. Both actions generate this error:

General failure (server should provide error description).
Error code: 4
Error message from server: Failure
Request code: 3

Re: Files self deleting

Please post a full log file showing the problem. Ideally focus on only one of the problems.

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. For posting extensive logs you may use pastebin or similar application. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you may email it to me. You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile. Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have emailed the log.
