Thunar problem, copying files/folders with country specific characters

Hi there,

i try to copy a MP3 collection with Thunar from my SSD (ext4 partition) to an usb drive (ntfs partition).
There are items which have country specific characters in the file/folder name.

When the copy process of Thunar reaches one of these country specific characters,
it stops and tells me "invald file/folder name", skip or cancel...?
Unfortunately the errormessage does not tell me which file or folder.

Rammstein - Völkerball (the sign " ö " is a specific character of the german language)
Ill Niño - The Best Of Ill Niño (the sign " ñ " is a specific character of the spanish language)

My system is Arch Linux with "LANG=de_DE.UTF-8" in "/etc/locale.conf".
When i use "gnome-files" to copy the same folders,
the copy process completes without an errormessage.
But it replaces automatically the country specific characters with an " __ " sign.

How can i solve/configure this for Thunar?
(I know that rsync would be an option for the console)

Thank you for helpful information smile
