Topic "Issue with 4.1.4 Renaming Files Containing ":" with "%#A""

Hi,

When I copy a file from a remote host to my local PC using WinSCP 4.1.4 (SFTP Protocol) and that file contains a colon (:) character, WinSCP changes the destination filename on the PC such that the colons are replaced with "%3A". For example, copying a file named "test:1:2:3" from the remote host will result in a file on the PC named "test%3A1%3A2%3A3".

That's because Windows do not allow colon in filenames. Please read documentation.
