This is slightly off topic from WavevLab and audio specifically but I’m not sure a better forum to ask on at the moment, and maybe there is some slight WaveLab involvement.
Over the years, I’ve had a few projects where the client tells me a song is missing from the zip file I send them. After the project is approved (usually via DDP), I’ll send zip files of all the WAV/mp3 files they need. In cases where a file name has a special character such as a question mark or something similar, there are times when Windows/PC users cannot see or access that file after the zip file is extracted.
I use all Mac computers here and it’s never a problem for me or other Mac users, but if the end user happens to be on Windows then it’s likely that after extracting the zip file, any files with unique characters are just not there.
Is this a Windows weakness or is this because of how OS X and/or WaveLab adds these characters in the rendered file names?
