    I have problem with TXT file witch I am downloading from server. File has almost 16 kB, so It is small. I am downloading another file with another type in same project with bigger size (150 kB) and It is without problems. TXT file is not complete. It has 8 kB size and it is cut in half in middle of word.

    There is my code:
    Dim Job As HttpJob
    "DownloadMyFile", Me)
    Job.Tag = 
    and this is JobDone code:
    Case "DownloadMyFile"      
    Dim MyPath = File.dirrootexternal & "/download" As String  
    Dim out As OutputStream = File.OpenOutput(MyPath , Job.Tag, False)
    File.Copy2(Job.GetInputStream, out)
    What I am doing wrong? I am using same code for another files with another file type and it is without problems.

    Thanks for answer

    Hello @Tomas Petrus, try this instead.
    Case "DownloadMyFile"
    If File.Exists(File.DirDefaultExternal, "file-name.txt"Then File.delete(File.DirDefaultExternal, "file-name.txt")
    File.WriteString(File.DirDefaultExternal, "file-name.txt", Job.GetString)
    Also why Job.Tag?
