Some packages will not download from BITS enabled distribution points in ConfigMgr 2007

If a package has folders that contains characters like "+" or "-" there can be problems on BITS-enabled distribution Points. The package will not download and only the folder structure will be created in the client cache. 

 

To troubleshoot on the client from a command prompt run: "bitsadmin /list /allusers"

Listed 1 job(s).

 

The run: bitsadmin /info {92C8E35D-7B11-4B1B-885A-350C7B2AFE32} /verbose >>bits.log

 

In the bits.log we can see the error:
