If I'm transferring a 2GB sql file with filezilla, and it timed out after 50%. In my server, I can see that the new transferred file is about 1.1GB.

I want to know if there's a way through the same method (filezilla : ftp/sftp), to transfer the remaining .9GB without re-transferring the whole file again?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Did you ask on the FileZilla forums? – Mike Atlas Nov 17 '10 at 17:57
what error code came up when the transfer timed out? – thedev Nov 17 '10 at 17:58

I believe you can drag the file over again, and then, when the dialog pops up to ask if you want to overwrite the existing file, select "Resume" instead.

(I don't have FileZilla handy right now, so I'm going from memory here.)
