Folder / Files with `+` sign

Hello I`m using offline explorer Pro to download a Microsoft CMS site, the folders and files with spaces are appended with a + sign, so Telephone Contacts.htm is served as Telephone+Contacts.htm, this is the case for folders as well.

The problem I`m getting is the folders and files are be downloaded as Telephone_252BContacts, this is proving a huge problem. is there a fix or am I not setting this up correctly...?

Regards

Riz

Hello,

The + symbol is not allowed in saved filenames because of compatibility issues. This is why it is being replaced this way. But all links in downloaded files should work correctly offline. Why it brings a problem to you?

Hi Oleg,

The content is downloaded and then indexed for searching, when a end user clicks on a search result it refers back to the site, because the url is incorrect (_252B) it comes back with page not found. This is really important as we recommended Offline Explorer over a Mcrosoft product please help !

Best wishes
