This file, with the ¾ (that's 3/4) in the filename, shows in the list of files but won't transfer, at least not in ascii mode. I didn't try any other mode.

My system: P/C with Windows 7, 64 bit version. FileZilla version 3.6.0

That's because the server is violating the FTP specifications. According to the FTP specs, all servers must either use 7-bit ASCII or UTF-8. Your server does not advertise support for UTF-8 (and does not use it either), so it must use ASCII. Yet ¾ us not part of ASCII.

Please contact your server administrator and ask him to upgrade to a modern server supporting UTF-8, or to rename the file to no longer contain a non-ASCII character.
