Actually, %5C is a \ character, % is %25
Why it is adding a character that is used in local address strings is
baffling and I think a clue as to what is going on. Is it possible it is
mashing a local file address into a web address?
BTW, IMHO using spaces in folder and/or file names is bad practice and
should be avoided.
