From Syncback Touch to SFTP:

Files without an extension are updated every time, how can I prevent this?

It has something to do with the period (. or %2E) at the end of the filename...

Files without extension keep updating incorrectly (2)

I now know a little bit more. The names of the files in question have for some reason a point as extension.
The only question remains why Syncback does not see the files that exist on the FTP server as such.
Does anyone know what could be a possible solution?
Or is it a bug...?

For example, the program "FileZilla Pro" has no problems with such file names!

Try disabling the option "Automatically translate invalid filenames" under your profile's FTP -> Advanced settings.

Thanks,
