Directory and files names with accents

The new version of Filezilla is very good !

I have a big problem with the french language and accents.
When I want to transfer pc-> ftp files or directories whose name contains accented characters there is a problem.
The first time, the transfer goes well and directories are created and files are transferred.

I turn off Filezilla and restarts.

When I want to update their files, it is impossible.

I found that the file names are changed (UTF8?) on the ftp server.

From then on, it's useless.


Normal name: "Avec les médias"
After the restart: "Avec les médias"

Thank's for your help !

Working as intended.

Please make sure that the server supports UTF-8 as filename encoding as
specified in RFC 2640. The only other encoding specified for FTP is plain
ASCII. If the server does not support UTF-8, you have to refrain from using
non-English characters or you're operating outside the scope of the FTP
As workaround you can set a custom encoding in the Site Manager which may
or may not work for you.
