A friend was running some tests the other day and while he was collecting timings etc downloading large files, the C:\ kept filling up and causing problems. Although he had told ftp to use the D:\ which had lots of free space via the LCD command, the c:\ was still filling up.
This is because it first creates a temporary file, then renames it once the transfer is complete. The only way I know about getting round this is to change your TEMP environment variable before starting ftp.
I used the commands
- set tmp=d:\
- set temp=d:\
Then started ftp for the tests and this resolved the problem, so you know of other ways you can get around this?
