  • Another WEBDAV issue - file names with ampersand

    BC 4.0.7 19761 is failing to synchronize any files that use the & symbol in the name. (a legal character in many file systems)
    Is this a problem that can be fixed in BC with proper encoding of the character (&")? Or is it up to the server?

    File names with & transfer ok on my test system. What kind of server are you running? Another thing we can try testing is the BC 4.1 beta, if there are any changes already present that might help.

      I don't know the details on the remote server. Is there any way I can find out by examining debug or log information?

        Not within BC4, but if you use/launch Fiddler2, and then connect, it can grab the connection info and displays the server in the Header tab. Is your server something we could register with and get a test account to connect directly to? If you have a test account for us to use, you can email that info to, including a link back to this forum thread for our reference.
