    I investigated a bit more and noticed that LMS was using a short file name (the so-called 8.3 name) for the track instead of the long name shown in Windows Explorer.

    I checked the tracks in my library.db and found that there are a few more where the original file or folder names have some "special" characters in it. Note that I have many albums especially from Northern Europe with lots of foreign characters that don't lead to 8.3 names. There are relatively few artist or track names that lead to this, like Leszek Możdżer (a Polish jazz pianist).

    Anyway, I assume this behavior is caused by Perl.

    So if the file is not added to the library in the OP's case, maybe Windows is configured to not create the 8.3 names at all?

    This can be checked with the command
    fsutil 8dot3name query
    (see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...util-8dot3name)

    Well, it's a thought... This file does have an 8.3 name. Here's a DIR /x for the file.
