    I’m using A Raspberry Pi 2 with the 2.5 image, however whenever I try to transfer roms over a set size in WinSCP i get the following error message :

    General failure (server should provide error description).
    Error code: 4
    Error message from server: Failure

    I’ve tried to google it in combination with Raspberry/Retropie but I can’t find a solution to it. It just cuts of the connection and put’s a filepart on the raspberry with quarter/half size of what it’s supposed to be.

    Before WinSCP i was using Cyberduck, and switched to WiNSCP because of the same issue.

    Does anyone know the answer to this problem?

    That usually means that you are out of available memory on your microsd card. In order to preserve space and accommodate various sizes of SD cards, the provided SD image from PetRockBlog is the bare minimum unexpanded.

    You will need to expand your SD card using:

    sudo raspi-config
    Select option 1- expand filesystem
    reboot

    That should solve your issue.

    Glad it worked

    Be sure to mark threads that solve your problem “resolved” (using the dropdown menu at the top of the thread) as it makes it convenient for others who may have the same issue.
