UnlimitedFTP - problems with accent characters
Posted by Greg Pettit on 14 April 2009 05:36 PM
Unlimited FTP 2.9 introduced UTF-8 as a default character set for internationalization. The unforseen problem was that in many cases, international machines are not in fact using UTF-8, but extended ASCII or other sets.

The latest beta version as of this writing is 2.9.1_beta3, which addresses this issue by using the OS default character set rather than attempting to enforce UTF-8. If you are having troubles with accented characters, you might be able to resolve your issue by installing the latest beta.
