I have an Iomega NAS Storcenter at home where I copied all my files (photos, video, documents, etc). When I access my files on the NAS using explorer from a home computer, I have access to all files but when I access the NAS remotely using Internet Explorer (or any browser) I receive the message that the file does not exist when the file name includes french punctuation (é,è, â, etc). I have colleagues who have other brands of NAS that does not have this type of problem. Unfortunately, almost half of the 8000 files have punctuation. Do you have a suggestion to help me? Thank you

Alternately, and this is a pain, but you can figure out what HTML code each foreign letter corresponds to and substitute that for the character in the path. So
