      Description

      When a file has been downloaded over the internet via Windows 10, and that file is later transferred over Guacamole using the magic "Download" folder, multiple files end up being transferred: "filename.ext" and "filename.ext:ZoneIdentifier".

      This is due to the way Windows 10 tags files downloaded over the internet with secondary "streams", such that it can warn users of the risks prior to executing those files:

      As Guacamole does not actually use such files, and the underlying filesystem does not support them, they should be appropriately ignored/rejected rather than downloaded.
