scan to using sftp fails

Product Name: WorkCentre 3335/3345
Operating System: Linux

I have setup the 3345 to scan to a file server using sftp but get the error: "file exists or the failure is unspecified".  There is no error code.

The 3345 is at software version  The ip address of the printer is  In the Address Book Scan To settings are: Protocol sftp, Address type: IPv4 Address, IP Address:Port: 192 168 2 30 22, Document Path: /media/toshiba/Public/xerox, login name: pi

On the server, the file permissions are:

pi@Zdrive:~ $ ls -l /media/toshiba/Public
drwxrwxrwx 1 pi pi 248 Jul 27 13:33 xerox

On another linux server I can successfully transfer files to the file server using sftp:

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sftp
pi@'s password:
Connected to
sftp> put deleteme /media/toshiba/Public/xerox
Uploading deleteme to /media/toshiba/Public/xerox
deleteme 100% 9 3.6KB/s 00:00

The file arrives on the file server:

pi@Zdrive:~ $ ls -l /media/toshiba/Public/xerox
total 1
-rwxrwxrwx 1 pi pi 9 Jul 27 13:31 deleteme
drwxrwxrwx 1 pi pi 0 Jul 27 11:07 test

Any help would be appreciated
