Description

3.37.0 & 3.37.1 only : random files not transfered without failure notice, files created with a size of 0 without failure notice, increase of failed transfers

With Filezilla client 3.37.0 and 3.37.1, when I upload large amount of files in several subfolders through an SFTP connection (to an openssh sftp server on debian jessie), I've got several problems :

  • Some files go missing without any notice in the failed transfers panel (they appear in the "successful transfers" panel but are not on the server)
  • Some files end up with a size of 0 on the server without any notice in the failed transfers panel (appear in the "successful transfers" panel but size 0 on the server)
  • I get some "target file already exists" for some new file to create
  • I noticed also an increase of failed transfers that I have to reset and requeue (though it didn't occur in the transfer which log is attached)

I could reproduce this problem several times when I upload a large amount of files with subfolder structure, but missing files and 0 size files are never the same and their number varies. It's generally about 4 or 5 for 2000 files to transfer.

I switched back to 3.36.0 and all those problem are not occuring anymore, and they never occured within the last 10/15 years I've been using Filezilla.


During the transfer related to the attached log file, I had 8 files in failed transfer. I reset and requeued and they uploaded correctly then.
Those files are not the one that are missing after transfer is completed.

Confirmed for overwriting after filezilla asked for overwriting an 'existing file', however folder was freshly created :

I can confirm this issue. Cost me several hours of scratching my head as to why my website wasn't working until I figured out all my files were not copying and some were ending up in the wrong folders (using SFTP with 10 simultaneous connections).

Thanks for your comment. I forgot to mention it in my report, but I also use 10 simultaneous connections.

I can confirm this major issue too. Same problems here:

  • Some files with size 0
  • Some files sent to wrong folders
  • No failure notices

I'm using SFTP with 10 simultaneous connections as well.
