I just found out that I can't download some of PDF files that's my client sent over to me. I says "The file you’re trying to download could not be scanned." We do this for 2 years I think and just found out recently when I start working today what seems to be a problem?
I have been reading the threads here in the Forum, and a lot of people experienced similar problems over the past few days. Probably due to some new change in Upwork's file transfer systems.
Personally, I never encounter problems like this, and you don't need to either.
All you need to do is use a tool that is actually intended for file transfers and which does not interfere so aggressively with the process. Pick one of these or anything you like:
Microsoft One Drive

Hi, just over the last 30 days, when potential prospects try opening up my sample presentations, they get the message that the fikes are "unsafe" resulting in a significantly reduced number of rewards.

FYI I figured out a work-around. By opening Upwork.com on my phone with google (not the app) I was able to open the pdf files, save to books, then save from books to downloads, then email to my desktop from downloads.
