I have had this issue as well...it occurs more often than every 20 minutes for me.

My camera overwrites a file via ftp every 2 seconds, and many times the new picture will be incomplete (gray bars covering half the photo) or just will not exist (0 bytes).

Meanwhile, our cameras continue bliviting predominately on the 20-minute mark:

... Fingers crossed, we have not seen one of these zero-byte files in the 10 days since installing the latest firmware ...

we have not experienced a "zero-byte" file since installing the new firmware 3 weeks ago.

And, I finally had time to check out the (motion detection triggered) ftp frame rate (/interval) controls in the 1.09 firmware.
The controls now work!
I tried setting for 1,2, or 3 fps; or 2 second intervals - all work at long last.
This is with a remote (across the continent) ftp server.

Also.

JavaLawyer, we just tried firmware update_DCS-5211L_DCS-5222L_1.11_2825.bin that was upload today, confirming it does not fix the issue. FTP filesize are still always zero. Details at http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=56622.msg226318#msg226318

Thanks for the upate.  If you noticed I pulled my original post a minute or so after posting, but it looks like you immediately read and downloaded the FW -- you were too quick for me!  ;)

    Oops - in mid and late January, we reported that the new firmware seemed to have fixed the 0-byte (zerobyte) problem. Maybe not quite ...
    During recent weeks we have been working with setup for some additional cameras (DCS-930L, DCS-931L, to a different server), and we saw occasional zero-byte files, that we attributed to breaking connections, resetting, etc.
    But, in the last several days we have had a number of these incomplete ftp transfers at times that this reconfiguration was not going on, including today (16 Feb) when we were not home.
    A difference is, the new 0-byte transfers seem NOT to be occurring coincident with 20-minute epochs.
    First set - 2 DCS-930L, 1-DCS-932L, same old server "A"

    Second set - 2 DCS-930L, 1-DCS-931L, new server "B"

Continuing to collect zero-byte jpg files, due to uncompleted upload transfers to the server across the country.
As with most since the January firmware updates, no longer occurring primarily at 20-minute epochs.
I think this proves that the firmware is at fault, just has a new fault mode now.

We had a really big glut of zero-byte files during mid-February, but don't see any correlation with the error characteristics or numbers, though we upgraded our router from WNDR3700 to R7000 about 08 Feb. - we excluded the transition days from the records.

Here's the scorecard so far:

Anybody else getting these?

In my case, the ftp server had no space left.  That is why the files were of zero length - they basically were incomplete transfers.
