I have a zip file where directory and file names ( thousands of files ) are encoded in Windows 1251, according to its creator. I.e. the filenames contain Russian or Cyrillic letters. My Windows XP SP3 doesn't show them properly
ÅÑaÑó«ñd instead of
АБВГДЕЖ ( I am just showing first 7 letters of russian alphabet, 2 sequences unrelated ).
Can anything be done on OS level to show them properly or are there are scripts either to rename or copy all directories and files?
In fact, I have no problem with keeping files' content as is, as they are actually karaoke files (.kar) and song lyrics in Windows 1251 encoding, but I would like to know why the filenames show up strangely.
