Problem with repeating folder names

Post by Gigo » 01 Dec 2006, 10:05

I'm trying to backup a folder called D:\Delphin\Delphin Consulting to a FTP-server.
On the FTP server I get the folder structure Delphin\Delphin\ Consulting and the backup stops with an error message that it cannot access the files.

I can get around the problem by renaming the root folder, but that's just a work-around. I've seen this prolem before, but never had the time to dig into it.

Make sure your FTP server supports " " (space) symbol in file/folder names

it DOES support the space symbol. How else do you explain the space symbol as first character in the last folder in: Delphin\Delphin\ Consulting???

The FTP-server is IIS 6.0 on a Windows 2003 R2 server, which , accourding to its specifications, does support space symbols anyway!

The issue described ONLY occurs with repeating foldernames.

this is a piece of the logfile from the FTP Server:
09:38:23 xx.xx.xxx.xx [426]created /Delphin/D-Schijf/Delphin/Amway/doublex_eblb.ppt 226 0
09:38:23 xx.xx.xxx.xx [426]created /Delphin/D-Schijf/Delphin/Amway/Thumbs.db 226 0
09:38:23 xx.xx.xxx.xx [426]CWD .. 250 0

09:38:25 xx.xx.xxx.xx [426]MKD Delphin_Consulting 257 0
09:38:25 xx.xx.xxx.xx [426]CWD Delphin_Consulting 250 0
09:38:25 xx.xx.xxx.xx [426]MKD Administratie 257 0
09:38:25 xx.xx.xxx.xx [426]CWD Administratie 250 0
09:38:25 xx.xx.xxx.xx [426]created /Delphin/D-Schijf/Delphin/_Consulting/Delphin/Delphin_Consulting/Administratie/Admin+settings+Delphin.xls 226 0
As soon as I changed the name of the rootfolder from Delphin to Delfin, the logfile shows this:
09:41:33 xx.xx.xxx.xx [427]created /Delphin/D-Schijf/Delfin/Amway/doublex_eblb.ppt 226 0
09:41:33 xx.xx.xxx.xx [427]created /Delphin/D-Schijf/Delfin/Amway/Thumbs.db 226 0
09:41:33 xx.xx.xxx.xx [427]CWD .. 250 0
09:41:33 xx.xx.xxx.xx [427]MKD Delphin+Consulting 257 0
09:41:33 xx.xx.xxx.xx [427]CWD Delphin+Consulting 250 0
09:41:34 xx.xx.xxx.xx [427]MKD Administratie 257 0
09:41:34 xx.xx.xxx.xx [427]CWD Administratie 250 0
09:41:34 xx.xx.xxx.xx [427]created /Delphin/D-Schijf/Delfin/Delphin+Consulting/Administratie/Admin+settings+Delphin.xls 226 0
This illustrates that the commands received by the FTP server are in these two cases very different. The only difference is the change in the name of the root folder, so please don't patronize me about the support of the space symbol of the FTP-server.
