I have a problem to create folders and files containing special characters (eg é, è , ù , ç .... )

Volume: Volume Type : Normal Size: 10M Encryption : AES Hash : RIPEMD -160 File System : FAT

I ride my volume without problems and I can create folders and files without special characters ( accents )

Fedora 20

root # locale

LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8 LC_CTYPE="fr_FR.UTF-8" LC_NUMERIC="fr_FR.UTF-8" LC_TIME="fr_FR.UTF-8" LC_COLLATE="fr_FR.UTF-8" LC_MONETARY="fr_FR.UTF-8" LC_MESSAGES="fr_FR.UTF-8" LC_PAPER="fr_FR.UTF-8" LC_NAME="fr_FR.UTF-8" LC_ADDRESS="fr_FR.UTF-8" LC_TELEPHONE="fr_FR.UTF-8" LC_MEASUREMENT="fr_FR.UTF-8" LC_IDENTIFICATION="fr_FR.UTF-8" LC_ALL=

root # locale-a | grep fr

fran�ais fr_BE fr_BE@euro fr_BE.iso88591 fr_BE.iso885915@euro fr_BE.utf8 fr_CA fr_CA.iso88591 fr_CA.utf8 fr_CH fr_CH.iso88591 fr_CH.utf8 french fr_FR fr_FR@euro fr_FR.iso88591 fr_FR.iso885915@euro fr_FR.utf8 fr_LU fr_LU@euro fr_LU.iso88591 fr_LU.iso885915@euro fr_LU.utf8

I currently have an Ubuntu seveur containing truecrypt volume and it's not a problem

  • I do not think FAT filesystem can properly handle special characters. – phoops May 5 '14 at 9:17
  • I create a volume EXT2 to test, actually accents are no longer a problem so I think switch to FAT => EXT4 – Neirda51 May 5 '14 at 9:39

If it's FAT you are trying on then what you are trying to do is not allowed, You will get the allowed characterset in filename here

Please change the type of filesystem if its a desperate requirement
