Zero-byte files (also known as zero-length files) are files that do not contain any data. There are many possible reasons for their creation. You will need to obtain an uncorrupted version of the file from the source if you want the lost data. Find out more about zero-byte files and how to deal with them here.

GoldFynch automatically flags zero-byte files as soon as they are uploaded so you can take appropriate steps to replace them. To view the list of zero-byte files in your case:

Step 1. Open your GoldFynch case and navigate to the 'Issues' view by clicking on the button in the left pane

Navigate to the issues view by clicking on the button in the left pane

Step 2. Select only the Zero-byte processing state. By default, all processing states are selected when you navigate to the 'Issues' view to see files related to a specific processing state all the others need to be deselected. 

Deselect all the other processing states to view only the Zero-byte files
