The following bug has been logged on the website: Bug reference: 15975 Logged by: Johann Oskarsson Email address: (redacted) PostgreSQL version: 11.5 Operating system: Windows 10 Description: When I try to load a large text file into PostgreSQL 11 on Windows, I get an "unknown error." This has been discussed on StackOverflow here: https://stackoverflow.com/q/53523051/264751 It turns out that trying to COPY FROM a large textfile, say several gigabytes, will always fail. According to Stack Overflow, this only happens on PostgreSQL 11. The earlier releases don't seem to have this problem. Example, given create table pwned( passwd sha1 not null, count int4 not null ); Then copy pwned( passwd, count ) from 'c:\src\postgres\pwned\pwned-passwords-sha1-ordered-by-hash-v5.txt' with ( format text, delimiter ':' ); gives ERROR: could not stat file "c:\src\postgres\pwned\pwned-passwords-sha1-ordered-by-hash-v5.txt": Unknown error Workaround is to pipe the file through a program, as discussed here: https://wp.me/p4w9PF-di
