I've encountered it a few times when using cPanel.

Try using SSH (if available), otherwise a standalone FTP application such as WinSCP.

kk ty brogan, would filezilla work too or is WinSCP not a normal ftp client? by not normal I mean does it have functions filezilla does not have.=/

I wouldn't recommend Filezilla - it's too inconsistent and currently there is an open bug related to random file permission errors anyway.
