Hi
I have this filename ANLAP10M$LSK.BR@NDMED1PUMPETM003557.model and will like to copy to PC, no problem if PC are working in English, but if it is an Chinise PC, the special are converted to some special chiniese charecters that cant be used.

I will like to convert the to - when I do the transfer, is this possible?

First you need to find how the conversion happens. It may happen implicitly in the OS or explicitly by WinSCP if it considers the remote filename to be UTF-8 encoded. What protocol are you using?
Then you can instruct WinSCP to URL-encode these characters, by manually editing following registry key:
Code:
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Martin Prikryl\WinSCP 2\Configuration\Interface\CopyParam]
"LocalInvalidChars"="/%5C:%2A%3F\"<>|"

(note that some special characters are also URL-encoded in the configuration).
