When is a special character available?

What is the problem you are having with rclone?


What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)


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

Windows10 x64

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

Google Drive & Google Team Drive

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

A log from the command with the -vv flag (eg output from rclone -vv copy /tmp remote:tmp)

I wrote a bug report like below two months ago.

And besides me, someone else reported a similar problem.

The developer has provided the link below.

On windows
<(less than)

(greater than)
: (colon)
"(double quote)
/ (forward slash)
\ (backslash)
| (vertical bar or pipe)

I understand that the intention you're trying to explain is because Characters is pre-assigned to Windows. Is that correct?

Of course, many of the above characters that can be entered directly from the keyboard cannot be used as folder names or file names.

People using Windows know this by default. Windows not only warns you, but also stipulates that you cannot use these characters as folder names or file names.

However, characters that you type in special character formats can be used.

The special character "/" is different from "/" which can be directly input from the keyboard.
The special character "?" is different from "?" Which can be entered directly from the keyboard.

I waited a long time.
I am currently using rclone version 1.49.5.

When will the best beta version be available for special characters?

Please just use the issue as it's already opened. Closing the topic as a duplicate.
