Filezilla do not delete or move some files

You upload some files on a Linux server and after that you cannot move or delete them despite the permissions are ok.

This may happen because such files have a space as first character in their name. There is no solution. Filezilla says its a problem of some servers and not of their client.

Hoping you have access to a Linux terminal, you can remove the leading space this way:

rename "s/[ ]//g" *

If you cannot write the command line because you can't access the terminal, but your hosting service has a html/ajax file manager, you can try from there.
