i am using the latest FileZila Version 3.8.1. This Version still has problems deleting subfolders those parent folders names contains german umlauts.

For example create the following folders:


  • test

It is not possible to delete both folders at once (recursive). The folders still exist after deleting.

Thanks for your work.

Best regards.

Are you certain that your server supports UTF8?

comment:2 by david87, 16 years ago

Folders with umlauts are listed correctly.
How can i figure out whether the server supports unicode correctly?

comment:3 by Tim Kosse, 16 years ago

Send the FEAT command to the server. In the reply there has to be UTF8 or UTF-8. If that's not the case, your server is not UTF-8 capable and needs to be upgraded to a better one.

Read for details.

Please reopen if UTF-8 support is advertised in the FEAT response and attach a complete log with debug level set to 3.

Here is the Output using FEAT command:

Command: FEAT
Response: 211-Features:
Response: MDTM
Response: SIZE
Response: 211 End

Are you really sure that this has to to with utf-8 support of server and that the FEAT command does respond everything?
I have just tested gftp and this ftp-program has absolutely no problems on the same server also using umlauts.

I have attached two screenshots where you can see this.

Please read the wiki article I linked in my previous reply why UTF-8 is required for non-English letters. Every other encoding is violating the FTP specifications.
