Incorrect File Naming when Transferring Folders via Drag and Drop

Reported by: jac50 Owned by:

Version: VirtualBox 4.2.6 Keywords: draganddrop
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Windows


When transferring folders from the Windows Host to the Linux Host, the files in the folders are named incorrectly. An example is shown below:

1 folder called foo, with files bar.txt and baz.txt inside the folder. When the folder is copied across, the files are copied to a dated folder in ~/Documents/VirtualBox Dropped Files.

The names of the files are "foo", "foo\bar.txt" and "foo\baz.txt". These files are all in the dated folder.

I have not tested if this happens on a Linux Host to a Windows guest, but I suspect a similar issue would happendue to the file difference in using "\" or "/" in paths.
