While connected to a WIFI in close proximity with upload speed of 10mbps approximately, some files appear in the log to have been transferred successfully, but the resultant file has all the correct attributes, except that it is zero length and empty.
It does not seem to depend on the length of the file, whether it is an even or odd number of bytes, has no special characters in the name, nor the transfer mode passive/active. Since my OS is windows and the server is Unix, I use LF line endings and transfer in binary, force UTF-8, and overwrite server only if newer date.
Repeated attempts at deleting the file off the server and re-uploading generally work after a few tries.
Also switching to an ethernet connection resolves the issue immediately and does not re-occur on that network.
