  • The Text transfer mode is only suitable for ASCII files, that are single-byte encoded plain text files (for example, .txt) such as UTF-8. Other encodings such as UTF-16 and UTF-32, and other text file formats such as .doc, .docx, .pdf, .rtf will be corrupted. Always choose Binary transfer mode to keep the file unchanged.
  • Amazon S3 and WebDAV connections does not support ASCII text transfer mode.
  • Google Cloud Storage and DigitalOcean Spaces transfer protocols can only transfer files using the binary mode.
