#4528 closed Bug report (duplicate)

Files on Linux servers with names containing symbols not allowed in Windows file names don't download correctly.

Reported by: Omar talu Owned by:

Operating system version: Vista Ultimate 32-bit


While downloading files from my Linux based CubeRevo STB/PVR I discovered that when file names contain symbols not allowed in Windows file names (colon, for example), resulting file name gets truncated from the first symbol (including extension) and file itself is 0 bytes and therefore unusable. So "FORMULA 1: The Factory.trp" gets downloaded as "FORMULA 1" and is 0 bytes in size. After renaming file on the server, everything works, but obviously it's not the option when you don't happen to have sufficient privileges.

Note that the file is completely downloaded and exists on your computer. You just cannot see it with Explorer. Get a file management tool that can see alternate data streams.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
