Vista fun...

| | Comments (2)

ok here's one that's not in Google yet..

If you run windows command line ftp in vista, it starts you off in your users directory. If you then lcd to a directory that doesn't exist, and then try to download files, you get this lovely friendly error:

Replace Existing File with Temp File:I/O Error

Of course you get this error *after* you've downloaded the file, so no idea where it puts it, but you've just wasted that time/traffic downloading the file.

The solution? Make sure your destination directory is correct :)
