FTP Backup of specific file names

Post by piwail »

Hi,

B4A changes my filenames during a mirror backup on a FTP location : "à" becomes "Ã".
How can I avoid this change ?

Thanks,

Piwail.

Hi,

You cannot avoid that. If a similar file/folder name with the same character is found before (eg: Test), all files with "test" will be backed up as "Test".

thanks for your quick reply, but I think my question was not that clear.
On my computer, I have a folder named "voilà" but B4A creates a folder with this name "voilÃ" during the backup on a FTP location.

Do you say that this change is unvoidable ?

thanks

Hi,

You used different accents, or is that how it is? one for lowercase and the other for uppercase?

I am not talking about accents but I am talking about the a/A character in lowercase/uppercase. That cannot be avoid.

This is all about different accent, "à" becomes "Ã" with a different accent. The problem is not about lower/upper case but is why B4A changes the accent of letter.
Hope this is better explained.

Thanks for your reply.

Hi,

Please send us the backup catalog (bkc file) for that job to support[at]backup4all[dot]com
To find it, go to View->Open Folder->Catalog folder.
Put the file into a zip archive.

For information to all forum readers, we found the solution.

The problem came from FileZilla that was not in UTF-8 mode. B4A does not change accents of letters during FTP uploads.

Regards.
