Mysterious uploads and file size difference between hard drive and uploaded web page

I downloaded the upgraded version of your software about 3 weeks ago. Two weeks ago my brand new website crashed but most of it re-uploaded without issue. A day or two later I started to have problems on my older website. Links in an uploaded document had changed so when you clicked the title the link went to the wrong document. Is there a reason that links can change like that? I check them after each upload so I know that they start out correctly. Also Filezilla does not seem to be uploading all of the code for the pages in my older website. Example: One page's file size is 94,718 on my hard drive but when uploaded it is only 93,751 - all 9 webpages have this issue. I tried re-uploading with no success. I also tried deleting the pages totally and re-uploading....initially the file sizes matched but when left for a few minutes it reduces again. A couple of times the page would start to display the correct file size during the upload but by the time the upload finished the size would drop again. I have also re-installed your software but that did not help. Though nothing appears to be missing there is a physical difference in the way the pages on my hard drive and the web copy displays when viewed through a browser.

Also periodically when I open FileZilla I find random pages that are no longer being used have mysteriously just uploaded back on to the web. That was the case last week - I found 5 old pages (that are deeply nested in folders) uploaded with my regular web content. In trying to discover why these mysterious uploads might have happened I discovered the file size and display issues.

It is critical that I get this fixed because the older website is a repository for legislative and regulatory information & heavily accessed.

Thank you for any assistance you can give.
