Cannot delete folder/file

Reported by: Chris Owned by:

Removing a folder fails if it was not created by a FileZilla Client and matches the following cases:

  • this folder has a file ".DS_store" (Mac) in it (cannot remove file as well)
  • this folder has a comma (,) in its name (in my case, it was created by a php script, I cannot open or rename the folder as well)
  • this folder/file has some backslashes (\) in its name (also created by php; however, I was able to rename the folder and afterwards I could remove it)

For all cases, it fails "No such file or directory". I reproduced this bug (especially the first case) several times.

However, I can delete the folders by a webbased system having the same user/group-rights as FileZilla had.

Perhaps there are some more problems if the folder/file name is not binary and was created by some other ftp client? I think the problem could be the charcater code?

Can you please retry with a recent version of FileZilla?
In case the problem persists, please reopen this issue.

An FTP daemon can be configured to disallow certain filenames or certain characters in filenames. Maybe that was the issue? Without logs, however, we'll never know.
