Joe added a comment to T115: Unicode characters in file and folder names will not appear in output.

Contrary to what I used to believe, VB6 does store strings in full, wide character format -- so the file and folder names with special characters should be in there. The inability for the output to contain certain characters then depends on code-page dependencies? Notice here that Asian characters and Hebrew are excluded, but some special Latin-ish characters are displayed:
