Either the server is deleteing the file, or else you are sending a TStream
that is not seeked to the correct position beforehand.  Please sho your
actual code.  Have you used a packet sniffer to verify that the full 1GB is
actually being transmitted in the first place?

Onloy to switch to another FTP library/component.  I doubt that this is
actually a TIdFTP problem, though.

That depends on which version of Indy and BCB/Delphi you are actually using.
Indy 9 on all version of BCB/Delphi, and Indy 10 on BCB/Delphi v5 and
earlier, are limited to 2GB.  Indy 10 on BCB/Delphi v6 and higher is (in
theory) limited to 7.99 Exabytes (max Int64), but (in reality) is limited to
whatever the server can actually handle.
