Path with quotes by FTP

WinSCP can't work directories with double-quotes.
For example

> CWD aston martin "se"
< 257 "/root/cars/aston martin ""se""" is a new directory

WinSCP regards only "/root/cars/aston martin " as a directory, and "se""" is a new directory as an optional comment.

See RFC 959, Appendix II: the directory name can contain any character; embedded double-quotes should be escaped by double-quotes (the "quote-doubling" convertion).

WinSCP 4.2.1 (Build 428), "Commander" inderface, Windows XP SP3. FTP protocol, passive mode.

Re: Path with quotes by FTP

Can you send me an email, so I can send you back a debug version of WinSCP to track the problem? Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have sent the email. Thanks.

You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile.
