Downloading >10GB files with Chinese characters fails

I have renamed an existing, downloadable 16GB file to "你好嗎.mkv". After this, it could no longer be downloaded.

A user of mine got the following error message:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Error><Code>InvalidArgument</Code><Message>Header value cannot be represented using ISO-8859-1.</Message><ArgumentName>response-content-disposition</ArgumentName><ArgumentValue>attachment; filename="你好嗎.mkv"
amazon drive
10 |5000

Up to 2 attachments (including images) can be used with a maximum of 512.0 KiB each and 1.0 MiB total.

Thanks for posting. I've raised this to the relevant team and will get back to you as soon as possible.

Does the file download correctly when using the standard website? That might help us determine whether or not this error is coming from a specific client or from the service all the clients talk to.

Yes, this affects the web interface as well. I took a large 16GiB video file with a roman-alphabet filename. Normally, it downloads just fine, but after renaming it to the above filename, the download does not start.

I am fairly disappointed that your team apparently did not care to do this test itself, it is a trivial thing to do. Also, just look at the error message above - that's clearly server-side.

But maybe I shouldn't be disappointed. This is just one item in a long list of annoying technical mess-ups.
