FTP file transfer - file 'shrunk' from 7GB to 2 GB with filezilla
Posted on 2014-01-03
I am trying to move what a win 7 machine says is about 7GB to a windows xp machine. using filezilla server on the xp machine and filezilla portable on the win 7 machine, I move the file.
while transferring, it says the file is 7GB. the % moved at 25% says that 1.8GB have been moved and it took about 8 hours over a logmein Hamachi vpn (the machines are miles apart)
when the file is done, win xp says the file is about 2GB.
Any thoughts on why that happened? the file is a shadowProtect .spi file. It is not a valid file after the move, so it's not the same file as before / not just a difference of OS and how they display file size.
