download file with space in the file name

Great project :-)

I am having trouble downloading files with spaces in the filename. For example "Movie okt. 25, 14 36"

I use the storage.DownloadFile method to download the file. 

If I rename the file to "" then it downloads just fine. 

Hope someone can help. 

Best regards.

which version do you use? Normally we solved several URL quoting issues which includes space in the file name.

I am using the latest version, just downloaded it a few days ago. SharpBox-1.0.1

But I have just tested some more, and it is not the spaces which gives problems, it is the comma (,)

The file I am trying to download is named "Movie okt. 20, 12 42" if I rename it to "Movie okt. 20 12 42" then it works perfectly. 

It is a video file I have uploaded from my iPhone 4, and it is automatically named "Movie okt. 20, 12 42" 

So it is not the space, but the comma which gives me problems. 

Best regards.
