    Goodsync created corrupted files with random character names in multiple folders in the job's path of 0 byte size. When rolled over in Windows XP, the operating system reports that the file size is a random number often of GB size or greater. The actual size in properties is 0. The files were created in a Verified Left-to-Right job. The job was initiated at some point by a Logged Out Mode cmd line startup.

    The files are often in a folder with a more than 20 files but not an excessive number of files. Less than 200 files often.

    I am currently running a chkdsk on this partition and it seems that is deleting these entries. It is not done so I can't say for certain.

    Please let me know what would cause this problem. I also noticed that in one folder, some of the files names resemble the folder path associated with this job. Ie, there are corrupted files that are named:

    S:/myjobfolder/mytruncatedfilepath/truncat
