looking for a way to return a list of files with extended ascii characters

Post by Geoff741 » Mon Jul 02, 2018 6:17 am

so ive got a few programs that dont like filenames that have special characters. example some of my files for some reason have special dashes (alt+196)─ and these programs wont even see these files so i wanna find all of these and manually change the special characters for regular ones (such as ─ to a minus sign -)

is there an easy way to find such files?

Please try searching for:
regex:[^\x00-\x7f]

regex: = enable regex search
[] = specify a set of characters
^ = NOT in this character set
\x00-\x7f the ASCII character range
