Does anyone know if I can check the size of a file after transfering it with AFT?

Regards,

If you're looking to verify the source file is the same size as the destination file then you can select this option in the account setup on the Additional Settings tab.

Thanks for replying, but what I would like to know is if I can check if any source file size is 0.

With AFT version 7 and some others below that you can avoid downloading 0 byte files by using the File Watcher and placing a 1 in the Minumum detected file size option on the File Watcher tab. Hope this helps.

I tried to use it, even read few docs about that but I think I can't make it to work.

Do you know how to activate that?

Thank you

Since it is on the File Watcher tab it only works with an AFT with File Watcher. When you select this type of transfer the fields will no longer be grayed out. One issue that I have found using this is that if the first file found matching your file specs is an empty file (0 bytes), it will eventually time out because it does not continue to look for other files that are not empty. In other words it finds a matching file, and it is empty and therefore it will not transfer it. Hopefully future upgrades to the AFT will address this issue and continue looking for other files or being able to use the option on a direct transfer without a File Watcher.
