  1. Filename Modification
  • Select the way how you want to covert the filename case while transferring the files.
  • It is useful with the “case-sensitive file-system” like UNIX and Windows to transfer the files.

On download, WinFTP Pro:

  • The character can be replaced, which are not allowed under the windows files name (/\:*?\” <>|) with %XX, [ XX denotes the hexadecimal representation of character ASCII code]
  • The trailing space can be replaced with %20
  • The trailing dot can be replaced with %2E
  • %00 can be added at the end of each name with a reserved meaning under windows (For example- PRN or NUL)
  • WinFTP Pro always reverses the modifications on up uploads, because it restores the original file’s name.
