Connection slow down (3 posts)

    I am sending at large video file (99GB) from Texas to Poland. Current at 23GB of 99GB.

    Connection speed has been 430KB / sec and moving right along but has now slowed to 230KB / sec for seemingly no reason.

    Nothing has changed on my end and I have been told from my Polish partner nothing has changed on their end.

    1) Could this slow down be Fetch related?

    2) I assume if I stop the transfer -- I will lose the 23GB that have been transferred so far.

    Any help appreciated. Thanks, jb

    Is the transfer still making progress? I.e. is the number of bytes transferred increasing? If it isn't I would stop the transfer, and confirm that there is additional free space on the destination system.

    If you stop the transfer you may still be able to resume the upload (see the option in the "If a file already exists" menu in the Put dialog).

    Hi Jim,

    Thanks for your message.
    The transfer was still making progress but slowed to 120KB/second with greater overall transfer time than we originally started with. Since it was still moving, we did not interrupt.

    We were getting close last night -- 4 hours left -- and when I came in this morning it said "disconnected"

    My Polish partners show 96 885 received of the 96.89GB file.

    Looking into it now but praying it did not disconnect somehow in the final seconds. with .005GB remaining....

    Hoping that 96,885 is enough of the 96.89 file to work. Thanks, jb
