Unable to export via WebDAV HTTP/SSL if content contains hashtag (#) - repeated attempts to export/Download files from a server fail if any of the target files contain a hashtag in the filename, sometimes it's just a few files & I can find and change the file name manually then re-try the export/download & it works fine, but other times there may be hundreds of "#" in the collection of filenames, it's too time consuming to find & change them all to re-try the export/download. Both Win7 & Win10 OS on both 32-bit & 64-bit machines.
Still chokes every time one of the exporting files contains a # character in the file name; Win7 & Win10 via WebDAV HTTP/SSL. Not resolved. Version 5.3.7 (23440) I can be exporting 1000 files but if any one of them contains a # in the filename, the whole download will fail.
Update: it's been a few years now, but still struggling with the same problem when encountering files with a # character in the filename.
"Download FILENAME failed. Unexpected Response (404 Not found). Please contact your web hosting service provider for assistance"
Files that have a # in the filename are not fully downloaded, the name just stops at the # character, omitting the remainder of the path, including the type extension such that the file cannot be opened at all without an associated program extension.
Will this ever be fixed? I literally instruct all of my users NOT to use the # symbols in their uploaded files or folders even if Microsoft allows it because I can't extract it later with Cyberduck. That's 2k people pissed off at me because they can't use a # symbol to denote a "Change Order # XXXX" or a "Meeting Minutes # XXX" - I even tried to open a support ticket with the software that we use Cyberduck with (e-Builder) and this was their response:
Ginny – I think your true crusade is on the Cyberduck side of the equation. E-Builder enforces the “reserved characters” that Microsoft determines, and # is not on that list. Cyberduck really should be handling that character without problem because it is an acceptable character.
Server details: docs.e-builder.net WebDav , port 443
Account credentials need to be assigned to use this specific application, but really no other application anywhere else in the world of all the people who use Cyberduck globally to move content has issue when there's a "#" symbol in their file/folder names? Syncovery has the same issue with files that have # symbol in them, but Cyberduck is way friendlier/easier in every way to use, we love it aside from this one quirk.
So many other companies who use the e-Builder software and rely on Cyberduck for back-end extraction keep hitting this same roadblock with the hashtag ### symbol, ticket has been opened since 2016 - crazy that it's not resolved yet. https://e-builder.ideas.aha.io/ideas/EBE-I-1197.
