Trying to do a redirect like:

Redirect 301 /blog/tag/blog/alarmforce%20videorelay

I guess the space is causing the issue. I've tried escaping but it still doesn't redirect properly.

Try using a "real" space and wrapping it in quotes. Something like:

Redirect 301 "/blog/tag/blog/alarmforce videorelay"

That did NOT work for me, but this did:

RedirectMatch My.*file.*with.*spaces.pdf " file with spaces.pdf"
