Cannot rename the files which present inside the folder name containing space in WebDav using MS Web expression. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Steps to reproduce:

    • Create the parent folder which contain space eg: "Test Test"
    • Rename the files which present inside the "Test Test" folder.
    • And it throws the error message as "Access denied" instead of "File name modified"
    • But when we change the parent folder name from ""Test Test" to "Test" without space it works.

    So can you guys please me to sort out this issue.

    Thanks in advance.

  • You may count on one hand the number of people on this forum who use webdav.  That number may, in fact, be 1 (you).

    Regardless, if you simply google (https://www.google.com/search?q=webdav+spaces+in+folder+names ) you'll see that webdav does not always play nicely with spaces in folder names.  Since you are hitting that problem, the solution is to avoid using spaces in the folder names (that's good practice on a website anyway).

    Please note that this is not a webdav forum, and is not a microsoft technical support forum, but a user-to-user forum.  Also note that EW is no longer under development, so what you've got is what there is: nothing will change.
