When transferring large files (I tested using 100GB and over) I get the error "Error: "Bad Data"" when I debug the issue. How can I stop the error message and ensure the file transfer completes?

I suggest adding the "-b switch":

-b buffer_size_bytes Define maximum buffer size for one request (default: 32768 bytes)

For example:

sftpg3 -b 65536

Thanks, James Wright
