Automatic renaming of the problematic characters


Hi there,

Great tool. Almost the holy grail of all the upload tools I´ve stumbled upon.
At least one important thing I´m missing: the automatic renaming of the problematic characters/combinations in file and folder names. This includes the following tricky characters: ~ # % & * : < > ? / { | }.

Here's another project that might be inspiring:
The Migration Dragon for SharePoint 2013

Hope to see this feature in the near future be available in a new version.

Keep up the good work!

Of course the Rename function can be used but with a bulk upload it's not doable.

I just updated SPFileZilla with this change, it will fix problem chars when uploading files to SP on the fly (nukes the bad chars, doesn't replace them with anything).
