Well 18 Hands  (That a Bigcause)   ;-)  [Equine]

I downloaded from your site to my VRPC-DL as "Makro1,59/zip" it opened
okay and I take out a copy of !Macro to play with.

Then to put the downloaded Zip somewhere to keep it...
From within RISC OS I opened up my Mounted Storage drive and dragged a
copy of "Makro1,59/zip" into its filer window.

I get an error message window. which I've posted at:


Yet the file appears to have arrived in the Store filer window, but it is
now "Makro1,59/zip/dat"

But nothing can be done with the file, it cannot be opened, renamed, nor
can it be re-filetyped and more importantly the errant file cannot be

The only way I can do anything with the file is drop out of VRPC-DL, go
Windows side, navigate to where it resides on the Store disk and Delete it
from there.


In RISC OS changing the comma to a hyphen "Makro1-59/zip" solves the
problem and the file copies to the Store correctly and is accessible.


That's why it's a problem.  :-(
