Copy Files with colon : character fails (ntfs 7.0 7.1WIP)

Testdisk lists files with the ':' char, but fails when you attempt to copy a directory or file with ':' in the path. Files without ':' are copying fine.

WD External HDD 2GB drive
NTFS

Experiencing issue in both testdisk 7.0 and 7.1WIP on several different Linux systems.

Thanks.

Files with ":" are Alternate Data Stream on NTFS filesystem.
If your destination is an NTFS partition, you may not be allowed (by mount options) to create ADS.
exFAT may not be affected by this problem.
