Skip Post Transfer Check

Introduction
In some situations when the server returns wrong information it is necessary to disable the post transfer check. The most common case is when SmartFTP requests the size of the transferred file and the server returns the wrong size of file. SmartFTP then correctly assumes that the transfer failed. To work around the server bug the post transfer check must be skipped.

Enable "Skip Post Transfer Check" option

Example from buggy FTP server

SmartFTP sends 8950 bytes:
STOR file.htm
125 Data connection already open; Transfer starting.
8950 bytes transferred. (56,0 KB/s) (156 ms)
226 Transfer complete.

Server reports that the file is only 7069 bytes.
SIZE file.htm
213 7069
