[thelist] problems with FTP

I have never used SSH/Telnet, are they available on Windows, or do I need to
download a program to use them? The webhost told me I had to use ftp though,
so maybe that rules out SSH/Telnet.
If the files are corrupt, then wouldn't they be fixed once my client uploads
the files again?
And if it is a failing hard drive, that is the domain of the webhost, right?

Sounds like a corrupted file. Can you SSH/Telnet into the Box hosting the
web site? If so, see if you can grab a TAR/gZip of the site and download
that instead.  Once you have it local, you can then un-TAR it (winZip
supports TAR format) and check out the files.

Another possibility is a failing hard drive and the files in question are
located on bad sectors.
