I have a curious problem that we've been seeing and just I'm just wondering if anyone has seen similar or if someone with deeper knowledge of the Windows ecosystem has any insight.
When copying and pasting standard .aspx pages from a server location to a destination server, (connected via an rdp session), using an XP machine, invalid characters appear to be getting appended to the end of some files. All the .aspx files are UTF-8 encoded at both ends, (according to Notepad++), but some of them have a sequence of 'NUL', (0x00 I believe), characters appended to them meaning IIS won't serve them.
The guy doing the copying/pasting is using Windows XP and I've tried this on an XP box and just can't replicate the behaviour. It may be he's copying to his desktop from the server, then to the destination server, (rdp session), but he's certainly not admitting as much.
Any thoughts opinions or idea's on what could be causing this appreciated, it just seems strange to me?
