I'm in a very very strange situtation.

I use FileZilla for Windows 7, and when I upload a file to my server I receive: "File transfer successful, transferred 14,939 bytes in 1 second", but when I go to my website to see the changes, nothing is changed.
When I try to upload the file again (overwrite it) I noticed that the files have different sizes, like it was not uploaded.
I've tried this also on other servers and I have the same problem.

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

What is "your server"? A webhosting company? Something you run yourself? – Kyle Smith Jan 29 '12 at 16:15
No, I have a simple hosting for my website from a webhosting company – Alecs Jan 29 '12 at 16:34
Do you have the same problem if you try it from a different client with other files? – Bart De Vos Jan 30 '12 at 7:37
Can you add files that weren't there before? Will they be available? Are you sure you're uploading into the correct directory? Make sure you don't use ASCII transfer mode, otherwise comparing file sizes makes no sense. – Daniel Beck Jan 30 '12 at 8:06
