Target File already exists

#1 Post by hallsworthb » 2020-11-19 15:02

Hi; I am trying to backup my website using Filezilla Pro.
It runs smoothly on my Mac, backing up to the desktop from the website. Gets to something like 6,000 files on 2,000 directories.
It then starts giving error - "Target File already exists".

The folder I am copying to on the desktop is clear at the beginning.

I don't understand how that can happen if the files structure is copied?

Check the message log there must have been a failure, what does it say?
