Warning on illegal characters


Recommended Posts

Thank you for making such a wonderful program.


Yesterday I made an ISO. Did a bit of cut/pasting for the filename. I failed to see that the filename contained a ":" in it. Imgburn started it's process as normal, but when it was done (and unfortunately I had deleted the sourcefiles) it only left a 0 byte file. The name of the file was the text before the ":".


Would be great if imgburn gave a warning when target filename contained characters that could potentially cause problems.

Behold :)

One thing I have learned over the years is that users will always find a way to do stuff they shouldnt be able to.

See included pictures + part of the log


I 19:38:58 Destination File: \\r2-backup\xxxx\xxxxx\xxxx\test X test : Vol 7 (2011) AVC BD25.iso
I 19:38:58 Destination Free Space: 345 143 738 368 Bytes (337 054 432,00 KiB) (329 154,72 MiB) (321,44 GiB)
I 19:38:58 Destination File System: NTFS
I 19:38:58 File Splitting: Auto
I 19:38:58 Writing Image...

I 19:57:43 Operation Successfully Completed! - Duration: 00:18:44

I 19:57:43 Average Write Rate: 19 819 KiB/s (4.5x) - Maximum Write Rate: 22 006 KiB/s (5.0x)

I wonder where the data went though since the file is 0 bytes.
Edit: the data is obviously tied to the 0 byte file as space was freed when I deleted it.
