Restoring an Archive File to 2960

I can successfully transfer a file to and from my Cisco 2960 switch. I have an archive function in my configuration and it works great. I am trying to restore a config from my backup location to the flash on the switch. I can successfully SCP from the switch to my backup location and transfer the files to the switch flash. The file shows/ displays there. However, the file size on flash shows zero / 0.

I have verified the contents of the config in notepad. The file size, when viewed from computer, is 13 KB. I can open in notepad either using a .txt or .cfg extension.
