I am using WinSCP 4.0.6 to synchronize my files between my laptop and work computers via FTP. NC style. The FTP server I use is Cerberus FTP server. Both computers use Win XP.

Everything works fine except the files whose name contains the character "%", for example "DTA Bi-60% 0-600C.png"

The behaviour with these files is erractic. The program detects when they are out of sync but sometimes dont update them, and when it updates them, it changes their names, adding "25" after the "%". For example, the previous file would become "DTA Bi-60%25 0-600C.png" in the other computer. (apart from the not updated file with the original name)

This creates more problems, because the next time I try to sync, that file is considered new, and it will be copied to the other computer. Changing its name, that will become "DTA Bi-60%2525 0-600C.png". And so on...
