Chinese filename download ok, upload not ok (2 posts)

    I've set the "Preferred encoding" to UTF-8 and checked "Encode and decode file and folder names". I can see Chinese filenames just fine, and when I download the files, their filenames remain the same. But when I upload a file with Chinese filename, the characters become a mess. For example, 川渝会.doc becomes %25e5%25b7%259d%25e6%25b8%259d%25e4%25bc%259a.doc. This doesn't happen when I use Transmit 3. How do I fix this?

    I'm using Fetch 5.3.1, OS X 10.6.2.

    You should uncheck "Encode and decode file and folder names;" usually you do not want to enable that option if you are using a non-English preferred encoding.

    Please let us know if that doesn't fix the problem.
