PDF files corrupted by Direct FTP -...

Often when I upload a PDF file to my website the file ends up corrupted. When I upload then download the same file I discover that the file size is changed and the PDF will not display correctly in my browser. When I do the same using Windows FTP utility from a command prompt window everything works fine. Why does CoffeeCup Direct FTP corrupt FTP files? Is there a solution?
Thank you

Hi Robert,

I would suggest opening a support ticket for this question as I'm not sure how often the CC people check messages over here. You may find faster response this way.

In the Actions menu it might be worth seeing whether it helps to change the Transfer Mode from Auto to Binary.
