Re: difficulty uploading large file

I would suggest verifying the md5 or SHA-256 hashes once the file is transferred to the remote end.
If they don’t match, something went wrong with the data transfer.

Hm, how large is the file?
Somehow I doubt this is a problem with Filezilla.
Have you tried on more than one ftp site?
Might be a problem on the remote end, since the file extracts fine on yours.
I personally use sendspace, but it is slow, for uploading large files especially. It’s a pain but I have a paid account and basically unlimited storage.
Many people use dropbox today and I’m sure someone could give you pointers about that if that’s what you need.
But FTP is pretty tried and true, you know?

Subject: difficulty uploading large file
Using latest Filezilla,I am attempting to upload a fairly large rar file to an FTP site and although the file test extracts on my system without errors, it will not extract at the other end. This has been attempted numerous times with the same result.
Does anyone know if this is because of the rar format being used or some other problem. What if the zip or some other format was used instead.
Failing that, how can I use one of the sites where a file can be uploaded and then downloaded by another person? Although I have used one of these sites to download a file, I know nothing about uploading a file and making it available for another person.
