How do you load a workspace with files that contain ':' or folders ending with ' '?


Jamie Berry (14013082) | asked Jun 24 '15, 11:35 a.m.
 We have a project area that has had files added to their component with colons, ':', in the file name.  There was also a folder added that ended in a space, ' '.  When a few users attempted to load their workspace on a Windows 7 machine via Eclipse with RTC 5.0.2 or 4.0.2, the load failed due to the ':' and the ' ' in the item names.  We also attempted loading the component using the Windows Shell Integration, and it failed there as well.

The error we received was an Internal error during "Loading repository items".  A dump from the Eclipse log after attempting to load a file that had :58 in the file name is below:

We were able to get around this by using the Web client to rename the files and the folder, but I am still curious what the issue is.  We supposedly have some people who are able to load the components.  The files were added to the component using RTC on Windows (I believe it may have been RTC 4.0.2).

Thanks,
Jamie.

Can you explain how you added a ":" name to a file on Windows?
Also how the space was added to the Folder name at the end?
I can not use ":" to the file name on Windows. And space at the end is truncated.

 It is my understanding that the folder and files were created on Linux, and then copied over to Windows.  I confirmed that I can use cygwin to create a folder ending in a ' '.  When I tried creating a file with ':', it replaced it with a different character.
