I Raspberry Pi 2 as a Torrent Box. I recently attach to it an external usb HDD formatted in NTFS. I can download successfully any file in the hardisk but when I try to connect to my Raspberry with Filezilla and trying to download file stored in the external disk I got this error message:

error while reading: received failure with description 'Failure'
Transfer Failed

I also run the command df -h to see how much free space I have and this is the output:

File system     Dim. Usati Dispon. Uso% Montato su
/dev/root       5,9G  3,9G    1,8G  69% /

/dev/sda1       233G  875M    233G   1% /media/pi/external-hardisk
tmpfs            93M     0     93M   0% /run/user/1000

I don't have any problem with the space. The permissions of the folder are given recursively and are:

drwxrwxrwx  1 root root 4096 dic 16 17:30 external-hardisk

So, what is the problem?
