http://www.unix.com – Hi, I have one doubt over sftp. I am trnasferring a file from server1 to server2 using sftp. The size of the file shows different in file 1 and file2 after sftp even though it shows same number of byte transferred. I don't understand the problem. For example: I have file1 having size 924MB on server1 and I sftped the file to server2, it shows " 100% 924MB 9.5MB/s 01:37" but when I check the size of the file server2, it shows 603M. Why it is happening? One Server1 Code: <server1> cd /dir1/dir2 <server1>ls -lh file1 -rw-rw-r--  1 user1 user1 924M Oct&nbsp (HowTos)
