    I tried to download the latest files from Vince's FTP site using these commands into an empty directory tree:

    Code:
    iftp ftp://lucky.syr.edu/4plugins
    copy/[!descript.ion]/efgrhv/netj/j /s /[d-21] ftp:
    Using the newest build, 14.03.51, none of the files was properly copied, no error was reported:

    Code:
     Directory of  F:\DOWNLOAD\JPDL\PLUGINS\FATICA\LUCKY\ZZZZ\*
    
    2012-11-26  22:35         <DIR>    X64
    2012-11-25  15:40              95  4console.zip

    2012-11-26  15:30           2,048  4utils64.zip
    2012-11-26  15:31           2,048  sysutils64.zip
    
    I executed the same commands in 13.04.63, the result was:

    Code:

    Not reproducible here, with either the 32-bit or 64-bit versions. (Even with your highly dubious syntax!)

    Anybody else able to reproduce this?

    I copied/pasted Steve's commands right from the forum to a command line (lousy syntax and all). I'm not sure what I was supposed to get but I did get a bunch:
    Code:
    v:\zips> copy/[!descript.ion]/efgrhv/netj/j /s /[d-21] ftp:
    ftp://lucky.syr.edu/4plugins/4console.zip => V:\zips\4console.zip
    ftp://lucky.syr.edu/4plugins/4threads.zip => V:\zips\4threads.zip
    ftp://lucky.syr.edu/4plugins/4utils.zip => V:\zips\4utils.zip
    ftp://lucky.syr.edu/4plugins/sysutils.zip => V:\zips\sysutils.zip
    ftp://lucky.syr.edu/4plugins/X64/4console64.zip => V:\zips\X64\4console64.zip
    ftp://lucky.syr.edu/4plugins/X64/4utils64.zip => V:\zips\X64\4utils64.zip
    ftp://lucky.syr.edu/4plugins/X64/sysutils64.zip => V:\zips\X64\sysutils64.zip
    
         7 files copied
    
    v:\zips> d

    That's the same results I got; no sign of any file truncation.

    I've tried in XP, Windows 7, and Windows 8, 32-bit and 64-bit, and the ftp copies worked as expected in all cases.

    Maybe they are text or html files that describe some errors. Did You try to read them with list?

    The files are ZIP files to distribute Vince's plugins. I just tried again and had the same result: no file exceeding 2,048 bytes.

    Yes, I know that they SHOULD be zip files.
    I downloaded them without any issue, copying and pasting Your lines.
    What I mean is that it has already happened to me, more than once, in my case using a download manager, that it downloads a text file, believing that it is the original file that I wanted, and so it keeps the original name, but inside it is really a text file that describes an error.
    So, if You check these files with list do You see that they are the first part of a zip file, beginning with PK, or they are something else?
    This might be a hint about what is happening.

    I seriously doubt this is a generic TCC issue, as you're the only user reporting a problem with FTP transfers. (Which is very widely used by the remaining couple hundred thousand TCC users, including a few dozen times a day by me.)

    Try it first without any of your (malformed!) options; i.e., just :

    *iftp ftp://lucky.syr.edu/4plugins
    *copy ftp:* .

    If that works, try adding your options back in one at a time. (Do you have any aliases for COPY?)

    If that doesn't work, try restarting Windows.

    If it still fails with no options and no aliases (and after restarting Windows), try starting IFTP with the /V option, and send me the resulting output from a simple COPY.
