Drag to Windows UNC folder fails

Description (last modified by dkocher)

Windows 7 64-bit

Dragging and dropping a file from Cyberduck to a Windows UNC folder doesn't copy the file. It creates a file with a random GUID of zero bytes, but doesn't then update this to the file one wants to download.

Steps to reproduce:

Open an explorer window Navigate to a UNC path (ie. \\myserver\myshare\myfolder\) Drag and drop a file from an FTP site in Cyberduck to this window A 0 byte file named like d9df9260-d0ae-4dce-b765-b40ab8759f64 will be created, but nothing downloaded

This may be related to ticked #5329 which I just created

Same applies to a UNC mapped folder that is offline synced. The path for the local filename resolves from a UNC style path to a locally prefixed path, such as from \ \profiles\andy to c:\windows\csc\v2.0.6\namespace\profiles\andy, however this path is not accessible for direct writing. Also see

To support this scenario we would need a shell extension which we currently do not have. Technical background information can be found here.
