No problem. I've re-added address@hidden, because it is a pilot
error, and I would like to share the analysis for the archives. In my
analysis, there are no confidential data.

According to the backtrace in Tramp's debug buffer with debug level 10,
you have called interactively:

(copy-file "c:/Users/censored/Main.js" 
"/plink:user@host|su:root@host:/home/censored/test" 1 nil)

This is wrong, because this invocation of copy-file expects .../test to
be a file, and not a directory. See the docstring of copy-file:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---

Copy FILE to NEWNAME.  Both args must be strings.
If NEWNAME is a directory name, copy FILE to a like-named file under
NEWNAME.  For NEWNAME to be recognized as a directory name, it should
end in a slash.
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

If you want to copy a file to a directory, you must call instead

(copy-file "c:/Users/censored/Main.js" 
"/plink:user@host|su:root@host:/home/censored/test/" 1 nil)

Pls try it again. Keep the change for tramp-inline-compress-start-size.
