Large files getting corrupted

#1 Post by jxchamberlain » 2019-02-04 11:31

For the last several months I have been having an intermittent problem with file corruption on upload of largish (>20 MB) files. FZ shows no permanent errors and the byte count is correct but running a checksum (SHA-256) shows differences and the files (pdfs) can't be printed. I suspect that the problem may occur when the link drops out and is resumed and may be related to the remote ftp server. But I can use Windows Explorer or other ftp SW with no problem. I have a feeling that changing from Auto to Binary may help but have not run enough tests to confirm this. Any suggestions?

Which FTP server software is running on the server machine?

Thanks - I understand that they are using Amazon Services on the server end if that makes sense.
