OK, I've done some digging in your previous posts and have found this snippet from you:
Because windows are unable of saving greek filenames also in
utf8 format(they save only the file contents iam afraid)
which makes me wonder if Windows is saving the filenames correctly and that you actually have a display issue in cmd.exe. Googling for 'windows greek filenames cmd.exe' gets me this as one of the results, which has, about halfway down, the following:
While the reason for their existance might be odd, whitespaces, dots,
percentage signs are perfectly legal characters for file names in
Windows 2000 (Though they weren't in DOS).
The only illegal characters for file names in Windows are:
\ / : * ? " < > |
Anything else is OK, including international characters which may seem
odd to you if your FS is FAT and your codepage is not set correctly
(or simply because you don't speak russian/greek/hebrew/arabic/etc).
Unfortunately I don't 'do' Windows well enough to confirm if this is the issue or not, but, at the very least, something like this should get you started.
Hope that helps
