WinSCP Odd File Problem

Hits 3590 | Created 2007-11-30 | Modified 2007-11-30

Are you having an issue where file transfers to your server leaves the files mangled? The ending cut off, or parts of the script appended over and over?

I was suffering from this, but only when transferring to linux servers - windows based ones all seemed fine. And for me, only when using FTP rather than another protocol.

Files would load okay, but when I modified them and saved them again, they would appear odd when I reloaded them, or viewed them in a browser. Usually, some of the text from the page would be repeated at the end of the file.

Solution: Upgrade your WinSCP client. I was running 4.0. I upgraded to 4.0.5 and the problem vanished immediately.
