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:

WOW, don't try that on your real data. I'm going to make a note to try it myself to see if it'll get into looping back and forth. If they're both looking at modification times, which Replicator preserves, then two way sync through two jobs would do it.
