It seems that vfs 553 could not create file occurs when an emoji is entered in the file name

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Update stor: 553 Could not create file error occurs when uploading a file with emoji in the name

I'm trying to upload a YouTube video with an emoji like :grinning: :smiley: :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes: :grin: to FTP, but there was a problem, which was consuming a lot of traffic.

folders and files containing emoji get vfs error

Normal files and folders work fine.

Failed to copy: update stor: 553 Could not create file.
will retry in 10s: vfs cache: failed to transfer file from cache to remote: update stor: 553 Could not create file.

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)


Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

andriod arm

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)


So it looks like your FTP server can't store files with emojis.

What do you think rclone should be doing better here?

You could use crypt which will make filenames the FTP server can store.

UTF8mb4 should help.
