Trying to FTP a large image file (85GB) from one server to another

Hi,

We're trying to implement a quick and dirty disaster recovery plan until our long term mechanisms are in place.  

We're attempting to FTP an image (85GB) from our datacenter to a different machine which will become the main server in the case of a disaster.  We're having problems successfully completing that transfer.

We're using filezilla as the FTP server and SyncBack SE as the client.  We're moving the image from a server running Windows 2003 to one running Windows 2007.  The transfer will run for a few hours and then disconnect.  There is nothing helpful in the logs ...

We're scratching our heads ... any ideas on this one or for a better plan altogether?

Some FTP clients and servers support setting resume points so you don't have to resend the entire file.

Hmm, I thought FileZilla client did so I guess I assumed FileZilla server would do it also.

Maybe you could try FileZilla client and another FTP server?  Gene6 and Robo-FPT server support resuming interrupted transfers.
