#4645 new Bug report

Multiple local files with same name after download

Reported by: Matthew Hamilton Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: windows multiple local file Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: Vista Home Premium SP1


When I download files with the same name but different cases (e.g. Readme.txt and readme.txt) from different remote directories to the same local directory you end up with two files in the local side of the client.

As you know in windows file names are not case sensitive so there should only be one file.

I just tried it again still the same. If you download a file that exists but has a different case i.e. Web.config and web.config you get prompted to replace the file but after downloading in the left had explorer window you get both files displayed when there is only one actually there.

If you then refresh the extra file disappears

I'm using version on windows

Please update the bug in order to catch the whole issue.

An other case where the case sensitivity on filename result to unexpected behavior:

1)FTP has a file with name a.txt
2)Local has a file with name A.txt
3)Upload the A.txt to the FTP

Filezilla will not ask for override verification.
File will is uploaded to the FTP and the original file a.txt will get lost.
