pion: ioFTPD by itself doesn't delete uploaded files if it's log disk runs out of space. However, scripts such as nxtools that can't update the SQLite database because the disk is out of space return error conditions and THAT looks the same as what happens when the zip/site script rejects the upload for bad crc, etc. Practically it's the same thing, but nothing prevents the site script from returning warning messages in the response to the command while returning a non-error code to the server itself which wouldn't result in the file being deleted. Interesting enough the site script wouldn't even be able to record the error in a logfile at that point either...

I think you'll find a lot of apps go completely crazy if they don't have free disk space... I suppose it's not a terrible idea to test for free disk space and prevent uploads if it's system disk is out of space.
