We have a Pentaho job that downloads files to our local machine. We do some processing and then we copy one of the files to another folder.

Because of internal reasons, some of the files have `%2F` in the filename, the escaped version of a forward slash `/`.


Pentaho seems to interpret these escaped characters as an actual slash. Other parts of our ETL job do not do this.


Seeing as the actual name has those slashes, I'm wondering how I can make Pentaho understand that those escaped characters should stay escaped.
