#3940 closed Bug report (duplicate)

Cannot handle files with some special character

Reported by: Michele Costantino Soccio Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: special character Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: XP


Filezilla will fail transferring files with filename starting with the special character '-'. Filezilla will also fail with filenames containing the special character '!'.

Not sure if this problem is only related to SFTP (my case) or to other protocols as well.

Got logs?

I can't seem to download files with the ':' character.

If I wanted to backup the emails from my hosting provider (that uses qmail) I can't use filezilla.

An example filename:,S

Filezilla will claim to have successfully transferred the file but the file will have zero-byte size and be named

I guess the ':' character is disallowed by windows.. but why the zero-byte filesize?

Btw, flashfxp will correctly transfer the file and replace the disallowed ':' character with '_'.
