The errors mean that there are one or more file names containing characters
that cannot be displayed with the ISO8859-1 character set. This means that
you cannot see that those files exist and you cannot access them.

To get rid of the messages and to display the affected file names, you need
to use the appropriate character set (which depends on what characters are
in the file names).

The only character set that can work with all characters is UTF8, so I
would highly recommend to always use UTF8 and you will never see these errors.

Best regards,

Anton
