    In uploading files from a Mac to a Windows system, certain characters that are not valid in Windows file names are "escaped". For example a forward slash (/) is converted to %2F.

    Other such characters go unescaped and cause transfers to fail. Examples are asterisks (*) and double quotes (").

    Since Fetch is capable of escaping some illegal characters, is there any way to get it to do the others?

    Also, is there some way to provide a more desireable substitution. For example, I would prefer to have the forward slashes wind up as dashes. That way the file name "Letter to Joe 10/5/2002" would wind up as "Letter to Joe 10-5-2002" instead of "Letter to Joe 10%2F5%2F2002"

    There isn't currently a way to do this, but it's a great suggestion.
