#10964 moreinfo Bug report

On Download from FTP to Windows some random files have size 0

Reported by: spellbound Owned by:

Description

I used Filezilla for some years now and didn't change anything with my configuration, I just updated the version whenever Filezilla asked me to.

The last months I could see that a download of my whole FTP seems to work as usual, but some files will get the file size 0 although on the FTP they have a size > 0. I can re-download them and all is good.

This is only for appr. 20 files of 30,000, but always different files. I download the whole FTP every week and always see this mad behaviour.

I think this is critical.

Oh, I have two computers, one at home and one in the office. This behaviour is the same on both.

Are there any error messages displayed in the message log?

no, and all files are listed in the "successful" list

Hey, one idea: It might have to do with parallel downloads.

When downloading the whole FTP, I always receive messages saying things like "target file already exists", and then it shows me the server file with server size and server date as source file. And a target file with date = now and a different file size (usually the file size is larger).

Since I always download to an empty folder, this file has definitely not been there before.

I checked the FTP with two files and there are definitely not two versions of the same file (with capital letters maybe).

I always select to overwrite existing files. Maybe it happens here...!?

Are you by chance using Windows Firewall? If so disable it, Windows Firewall on Windows 10 Windows has more bugs than an infested grain silo.

Yes, maybe I should do that. But I have another idea:

When that dialog (target file already exists) first appeared, I just recognized that the target file is newer, so I might have set it to "ignore source file", and to do this automatically.

I think this is the problem.

I just tried to download a few files to proof this, and again this dialog appeared three times. Two times I said "overwrite", and one time I said "ignore". The ignored file now has the wrong size: While it should have 8,231,361 B it only has 10,600.

As I said this dialog should not appear, because it is not a duplicate file and there was no target file with the same name in the empty directory. Maybe one process of my three parallel download processes (queues) sometimes tries to download a file that is already in the process of downloading by another.

If this is the case, then the firewall should not be the problem.

So... any update on this?

I really think it is a serious problem. How can I use Filezilla to backup my web space, if I can't trust it to do this job properly...?

Those two replies are mutually exclusive. Please correct the wrong statement.
