#5288 reopened Bug report

Image files with a "." (dot) prefix are transferred as ASCII

Reported by: Jamie Burchell Owned by:

FileZilla Client version

When downloading image files (tested with jpg files) that have a "." prefix in the filename the files are transferred in ASCII mode instead of binary.

Such images are created by components of FCKEditor to hold a small thumbnail version of a large image and are named in the format ".myimage.jpg"

See filetype page in the settings dialog, it has an option on how dotfiles should be treated if using auto-select.

Configuring the client to download as ASCII or binary for dotfiles isn't a particularly useful option as .htaccess is ASCII whereas .thumb.jpg is binary. Can it not detect binary files, even if helped by extension.
