    I was posting a 200MB stuffit file on my site. It hung up and I had to reboot. When I went to check it it had been assigned a name ".pureftpd-upload.44997571.15.35c3.b3d55704".
    When I try to trash it, I get error "Server file error: Prohibited file name: .pureftpd-upload.44997571.15.35c3.b3d55704" If I try to rename it, I get the same message. Thoughts?

    You may need to ask the server administrator to delete the file for you. I think it's a bug in the server that you can't delete the file.
