Windows compatibility of directory names

When fixing my audio files with SongKong, I noticed that question marks ("?") can appear in the new directory names, even though the option “Use Windows compatible characters in file names” is switched on.

I didn’t find anything about this in either the online or offline help and was hoping SongKong would “know” that these characters ~ " # % & * : < > ? / \ { | } are forbidden in Windows path names.
Here is an example (after renaming): “/Music/Irene Cara/Why Me?/01 Why Me-.mp3”.

This means that only the file name is Windows compatible, the directory name is not.

Am I doing something wrong or is it programmed that way?

Where is that option, I cant see it, please post screenshot.

Sorry I forgot this is a non-Windows option, you don’t see it when running SongKong on Windows, I will have to check the functionality in case there is a bug.
