    ftp suddenly failing

    DavidThi_808 Level 1
      Hi;

      Synchronize using ftp has worked great for several weeks and now suddenly it locks up on the same file (a jpg) each time. I click cancel on the synchronize box and it appears that there is still a background file transfer process. I cannot get Dreamweaver to exit and have to use the task manager to kill it.

      I have 8.0.2 and I have tried rebooting and then running this as the only app - same problem. Any ideas?

      thanks - dave

          What happens if you delete/don't upload this jpg? It's possible that it's
          corrupted.

            Is the jpg corrupt?

              Whether or not the file is corrupt shouldn't really have anything to do with it, as it's just sending binary data, not reading the JPG.

              My guess is that it is encountering a bit sequence that it doesn't like for whatever reason. Try saving the JPG again with a different compression level, or using a different ftp utility.

              You can ftp using windows explorer by entering ftp://username@host.com into the address bar.
