Unable to upload file to SFTP; Disk Quota not exceeded.

#1 Post by mjsalvadore » 2020-04-24 20:08

I am attempting to upload a file to an SFTP, however every time I upload a file the download starts, reaches 100%, then returns an error and restarts. This process continues 3 times, the file reaching 100% then returning an error, and then will finally result in an empty file being created. I have gone through many posts discussing the same issue and every response says it is due to the user going over their Disk Quota on the server, however I know that this is not the case having checked the space I'm using and the space that I am allotted.

Here is the error in my logs:

Error: error while writing: received failure with description 'Failure'
Error: File transfer failed

Thanks!

Even though your user account has enough quota, the server itself might have run out of disk space. Unfortunately the server does not provide a more helpful error message other than a generic 'Failure'. Please contact your server administrator or server hosting provider for further assistance.
