German umlauts

Hi Guys,

I just noticed, that you have problems with german umlauts inside the filename.

Is it possible that you take about these characters in the nearby future?

Best Regards...

    Hi John

    The problem with the german "umlauts" like äöü is still there in version 2.5.4 beta. Files and folders with these letters are not synchronised.

    Is it possible to fix that problem?

    Thank you very much!

    Same happens with other non-ascii standard characters (á,é, etc...) when a file with one of this chars in the name is added to the local folder, it is uploaded but in the server, the name is replaced with a question mark ('?') so the FTPbox assumes that the original file is no longer in the FTP server and it deletes the local copy.

    Hi John,

    I just noticed that umlauts (ä,ü or ö in folders or files ) will be replaced by an exclamation mark in a black diamond. That leads to double syncing. Any fixes planed?

    Fixed in release 2.4.4

    However, from my experience with testing, it is not 100% reliable (at least on my server)

    I will look more into this in the near future. Please let me know how it works for you now...
