Duplicate file with names containing non ascii chars can't be found?

Post by quuzuu »

For instance, in a folder, if I have 3 files:
★.mp4
你好.mp4
hello.mp4

then I Ctrl-A Ctrl-C Ctrl-V to create a copy for each file, then search for duplicates, then only hello.mp4 and hello - copy.mp4 will be found as duplicates, the other two sets are missed.

I'm using Pro v4.1.4 on Win10

I've confirmed this bug - the file filter check fails with Unicode characters above a certain codepoint.

So ϼϼϼϼϼϼ.rtf is ok but 💩💩💩💩.txt fails. Will fix!

Since this is a true serious bug, I think it's work fixing in v4.x? When is v5 coming out?

One year has passed since this bug is reported, still no fix. Don't you think it's such a fundamental flaw? It essentially make your software not viable for Japanese Korean Chinese Arabic users.
