Re: [EP-tech] WINSCP error File disappeared/0KB

Thanks Yuri, but I'm too late to try that. Although I'll keep it in mind for for next time...

I had to restart the server because I discovered I'd started something during my testing that produced a 26GB apache error log file. This took up all my server space and is probably what caused the error in WinSCP and my plugin to vanish. So I killed the processes, deleted the huge file and then had to restart Apache, which appears to have reloaded the config (as expected).

I've paid the iron price to learn to back up frequently.

You can also try to grep in the swap.
