OK, so I lied about the Drag & drop working. It only appeared to work due to some caching effect in Windows. If I closed the window and re-opened it, the filename was displayed as all question marks.
However I have now sort of fixed the problem. If I convert the filename to UTF8 and set the FTP Client Codepage to CP_UTF8 and just store that, it works in a way that is OK for me. It is only going to be my application that reads and write to the FTP site. So I am just storing the UTF-8 data as if it was normal 8-bit ASCII.

The standard FTP component only supports Unicode with Delphi 2009 and later, or if you use the OverbyteIcsFtpCliW version from my web site with Delphi 7 and 2007. > If I drag & Drop the file there is no problem. > this option is not supported using Drag & Drop) No idea what drag and drop has to do with any of this, or why you contradict yourself. ICS components are non-visual and do not support drag and drop. > OPTS UTF-8 ON (not sure how to use this Some FTP server support Unicode, many do not. Some (FileZilla) default to UTF8 ON (no hyphen), most need the OPTS command to be sent specifically to change from 8-bit ASCII to Unicode. There is discussion about Unicode and different FTP servers at: http://www.magsys.co.uk/delphi/magxfer.asp This (simplified) code comes from the TMagFtp high level FTP component on that page that hides all this stuff from the developer: if (ftpFeatUtf8 in FSupportedExtensions) then begin if (magftpNoUtf8 in fMagFtpOpts) then begin CodePage := CP_ACP; NewOpts := 'UTF8 OFF' ; end else begin CodePage := CP_UTF8 ; NewOpts := 'UTF8 ON' ; end; Opts ; end ; > Wireshark seems to report The only use Wireshark has here is looking to see if the FTP component is actually sending UTF8 charaters or 8-bit ASCII.
