if we download this file from ftp-server back and compare with original by "diff", we'll see non-printed char


on the end of each line.

I've tried to copy files on Xlight FTP-server (on Windows) and proftp-server (on Linux) - it was ok (size of file and its content was not changed). Copy by smb-protocol is ok too;

General problem is uploading zip-archives. They often become damaged and can't be unzip.

Upload from Windows to Windows has no problem.

This is by design. FTP performs line-ending conversion for text files. See
