Topic "cannot rename/delete files with accents in name"

Author Message


I use WinSCP 3.7.6 on WinXP SP2 Pro HU client and reach a remote server through SCP protocol. Hungarian language has some accents (,,,,,,,ő,ű) and WinXP NTFS(5.1?) has no problem storing accented filenames. When I copy such file through WinSCP, it stores on the server without problems, I can also retrieve (copy back) the file to my machine, too, but trying to delete or rename that file, it refuses with an error message - because of the accented filename. I hope this will be solved in 3.8.

Besides this program is wonderful, thanks a lot for the developers!
