Subject Re: File-transfer: delete target file on process error
Date Mon, 16 Jun 2014 15:01:07 GMT
I think this behaviour has been around for a while, and makes sense in the
majority of cases. Best practice is to download to a temporary location,
and then upon success move the file to its final spot.

That said, I think it'd be fine to add an option for not delete on error.
