Download from server to Mac - High Sierra

#1 Post by jbross » 2020-07-19 19:17

I know I have done this in the past, but it has been hit or miss. I have read some remedies online, but they don't seem to work for me. I am sorry that this topic seems to be redundant, but I would appreciate a definitive answer.

Here's the Problem:

I wan to download a file from a remote server. I logon to the remote server and then I access my Users directory on my iMac.

I then go to the desktop folder and drag the file I want to download to that desktop folder, but only a shadow copy is made in a second. There is no data, just a shell file.

I have tried downloading to other directories, locations, etc., but I cannot seem to get a consistent download.

Last week I was able to download a file, but I don't remember the exact path.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you for your time on my behalf!

Regards,

J. Ross

What's inside the shell file?

The "shell" file appears to be blank. I can't really open it to see what it contains. When I have downloaded the actual backup from softaculous, it takes a while and I can watch the progress as it downloads. The shell file downloads in a couple of seconds. It is 4 kb in size which probably contains any actual data.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
