Enabling forced UTF-8 for filenames in WinSCP

The hosting uses the standard UTF-8 encoding. If the files have Cyrillic names or they contain symbols of other national alphabets, then when creating or loading such files using various FTPclients in some cases, there may be problems with the display of file names and access to them. In order to avoid such problems, it is recommended to configure in FTP-the client is forced to use UTF-8. This is especially true when downloading files from devices running Windows.

To enable forced UTF-8 for filenames in WinSCP, do the following:

  1. In the connection settings, click "Yet…":
  2. In chapter "Wednesday" against "UTF-8 encoding for file names" choose "On" and press "OK":
  3. Clickon "Save" and "Login":
