    An upload keeps stalling and each time I get this description on the transcript "(error: 2,-128).
    Any suggestions please as to what this error code means?
    Thanks.

    Hi David,

    That error looks like it comes from the FTP server; different kinds of servers have different error codes so it's hard to say what it means from the numbers alone.

    Does your upload keep stalling in the same place? If so, that may mean you're out of space ("quota") in your account on the server. You might want to try deleting some files you no longer need on the server, then uploading again, and see if that solves the problem.

    But if it's not always stalling in the same place, we'd like some more information to help figure out why you're getting that error.

    After you try to upload and you get the error message, could you please choose Fetch Transcript from the Window menu, copy the entire contents of the transcript window, and paste them into a reply to this message? We'll take a look and try to figure out what's going on.

    Thanks,

    Thanks Scott,

    The transfers stop at different times and there's plenty of space on the server. I now suspect it may be interruptions in my broadband service.

    Here's a log of a typical failure:

    I hope this helps.

    Hi David,

    Yes, it looks like either the server is dropping the connection for some reason, or there's an interruption in your broadband service that causes the connection to be dropped.

    Since the files you're trying to upload are kind of large, you might want to try Fetch's resume upload feature, which will let you start the upload where you left off after the connection is dropped, instead of always starting at the beginning. (Not all servers support resume upload, but many do.)

    For information on using the resume upload feature, see the Resuming uploads topic in Fetch Help (or just click the link here).

    I hope this helps, and let us know if you have any further questions.

    Thanks,

    Scott,

    Many thanks for your advice and I'll persue my broadband provider as I know the server's fine from testing the upload (deliberately large) from another location.

    So that's a wrap.

    Cheers,

    David
