      Description

      Looks like this problem only affects Windows environments, the Windows explorer doesn't display students when they contain special characters in the name like "?".

      We have a student which surname is "Pavloviĉ", the "ĉ" symbol is converted to ? in the Sakai side and is not readable by the Windows explorer, it is readable by other programs like 7-ZIP. It is really annoying because there is no error message in Windows, basically the student is missing is missing in the folder.

      See the following video to understand the problem, I open the ZIP with Windows first (KO) and 7-zip later (OK):
