I have an old CD with Amiga files on that I want to copy to my modern Windows 7 PC.
Most files are read fine, but when Windows finds a file with a problematic filename, it only allows you to skip that file. It won’t automatically copy the file and remove the forbidden characters (such as '?' or '|') in it at the same time.
I want those supposedly “forbidden” files. How do I get Windows to automatically rename them as it copies and continue with the rest?
I’ve tried the following file manager programs, all without success. I even tried to dip into the options for each program to hopefully use its own custom copy method:
- FreeCommander XE (has its own copy routine, but still fails)
- XYplorer (has its own copy routine, but still fails)
- Double Commander
- Directory Opus 11 64-bit. (Pro edition)
- Unreal Commander
- Total Commander
- My Commander
- Just Manager
