10.4: A free utility to check for complete network copies
Authored by: osxpounder on Apr 13, '06 02:48:22PM

Is this problem you describe related in any way to SFTP transfer problems? I ask because I tried to move several files last night over a slow ADSL connection, using Fetch to SFTP into my box at the office from home. I am forced to use a Cisco VPN client, too.

Invariably, every time I tried to copy a 14.8MB QuickTime movie, Fetch would hang at the end of the transfer, and then say it failed because of a "bad response" from the server. It *seemed* that the whole file transferred safely, though. It plays ... and no content seems to be missing from the end.

I'm going to DL and try that program, anyway. Thanks!

Larger files managed to transfer, but not all of them. I got the same response waiting on a 100+ MB WAV file.

A really good way to check if a large file was transferred properly is to use MD5 to create a hash of both files and see if they differ.
$ md5 file.one
then do it again for file two and look at both hashes.
