FTP Error: 550 SIZE Command Not Supported

This will occur when the component tries to calculate the percent complete for downloads.

Date Entered: 01/13/2009    Last Updated: 01/13/2009

This feature can be disabled by setting:

ftp1.Config("CalculatePercentDone=false");

CalculatePercentDone enables or disables calculating the percent complete for downloads. When set to True, the component sends an FTP "SIZE" command to retrieve the file size before beginning a download. When downloading a large quantity of small files, performance may be increased by disabling this feature.
