Moving files with "$" in the name hangs WinSCP .

Hi guys.

I searched for an answer before posting, but anything that came back was on a different subject.

I'm using Version 5.9.5 Build 7441. Windows 10
The files are on a freebsd based OS (FNAS)

Recently, whilst moving over some music files containing the "$" symbol in the name, it caused WinSCP to hang. I've tried on two different machines and the outcome is the same.
The only way out is task manager.

Any help would be appreciated.

TIA

What protocol? Please attach a full session log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate the session log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.

I tried SFTP and SCP. The port is not standard, 2222. I wiped the log and started from afresh. I updated to the most recent release 5.9.6 Build (7601)
On leaving the program running, it doesn't do anything more. So I killed the process using task manager. Just the "$" character seems to do it. This file "Fergie - M.I.L.F. $" does the same.

I also noticed in the log the "\" in the file name (Ten\$ion) on the "mv" command. Seems the use of the "$" in the filename is corrupting the string some how?

I hope this helps.

Can you attach a full log file with SFTP protocol?
