Just download a zero byte file.

In my case, I put a zero byte file in the root of my site for Google indexing:


and when I tried to backup my site, the file was not created on my local disk, and the file was placed into the failed transfers.

Tested with the latest version:

FileZilla Client

Replying to xael-fry:

I have the same problem all my 0 byte file can not be download..

This is a permission issue, show the file's permission, example:

$ ls -l /path/to/0_byte_file

-rw------- 1 root root      0 2012-11-22 12:47 0_byte_file

So you don't have permission to read this file.
