    Unhappy Problem with non-english characters in folder's names

    I had this problem before when I use F7, F8 (copy, move files) and create new folder with name that contain special characters - in my case - polish letters like: ą, ę, ź, ó, ż, etc.

    Now I was very happy about DRAG and DROP function in IrfanView. I've really missed that one.
    But because of problem with non-english charaters — I can't fully use Drag'n'Drop function

    Here is situation.
    - In outlook express I create new message (new message window appears).
    - In IrfanView I've open some picture.
    - I drag'n'drop this picture from IrfanView to New Message Window.
    - If this picture is in folder which name contain polish letters, then when I try to send e-mail I've got a message like: "Can't send the file attached to message. The file can't be found" or something like that.
    - If the picture is in folder which name contain only english letters — everything is fine.

    Look at the screenshot (attached to the post). This is OutlookExpress new message window with files attached. On left you see the file drag'n'droped (from irfanView) from folder that contain polish letters and on the right you have the same file drag'n'droped from folder that doesn't contain polish letters. As you can see the 'bad' file doesn't show the filesize.

    Another thing
    If the structure is like...c:\folder 1\folder 2\folder 3\folder with polish letters\PICTURE.jpg.....then it's not properly drag'n'droped.
    But also if structure is like...c:\folder 1\folder with polish letters\folder 3\PICTURE.jpg ... then it's also not properly drag'n'droped.

    Also when name of the FILE itself contain polish letters it's also drag'n'droped not properly (in outlookexpress new message window it shows some strange file name and don't show file size).

    Problem with non-english charaters in folder's name or file's name.
