Re: Zero K Files With Autoversioning and WebDrive

From: Brad Rhoads <bdrhoa_at_gmail.com>

After a lot of back and forth with tech support, the short term fix
was to turn off persistent connections in webdrive.

"yes I should have realized this [the domain wasn't being sent as part
of the userid; when using SSPI, the userid needs to be
DOMAIN\userid,not just userid] sooner. You are doing NTLM
authentication. However it looks like the folder were you are
uploading allows public access ? It should go through a handshake
authentication process but instead just allows the zero byte upload.
Webdrive only does this for NTLM authentication because it assumes
that it needs to perform the handshake.

It looks like your server supports basic, you can use basic
authentication for now until I figure out a work around. Or you
could turn off persistent connections on the same dialog. These are
on the site properties/HTTP settings dialog.
