To my surprise the latest versions of Filezilla client cannot download filenames with special characters in their names (or in the path).
In my situation, the server is Windows FTP server (with Windows Server 2008 R2) and UTF8 is enabled.
The files are visible and spelled correctly from the Filezilla client, but as soon as the transfer is started it says "Critical File Error".
It is even possible with FZ to change te names on the sever side (as long as connected with granted credentials). After that the download works OK.

Downloading the same files with accents such as é è from the same server works OK with other clients. Hence I suspect a bug in F7 3.5.3. Unless there's something I'm overlooking, such as a preference or setting?

Lastly, when I choose Autodetect in the Site manager charset dialog, it is possible to browse special character folders, but not download.
But when I set "Force UTF-8" special character folders cannot be browsed.

All help and suggestions appreciated.

This means that the server does not use UTF-8.

Thanks for your feedback botg.

I have double checked the server and the UTF-8 parameter is set to "True" I tried "False" and back to "True" but not difference whatsoever.
I have a similar server running (same OS etc. ....) and here no problems with FileZilla (that is with é and è and ... in the filenames). I compared al the ftp setting of the 2 servers side by side, but I could not find a difference. Unless there's somewhere a hidden feature in IIS 7.5 (or Server 2008 R2). Anyone has any idea where to look in this particular server?

There is however one difference between both servers, one is the English version and the other one is French (the latter with the problem). I cannot imagine this has something to do with it, or am I wrong?

With other ftp clients there's no problem with browsing and downloading from the French server version. Could it be that FZ has a problem with that?

SOLVED!

It was the FEAT command that was set to "FALSE" which I have overlooked. Anyhow your comment about the UTF8 parameter pointed me in the right direction.
Thanks a lot!
