Convmv

Convmv is a handy little tool to take the headache out of filename changing. If you find yourself moving files around between OSes, you may have come across limitations for file names that throw errors like ‘incorrect character codes’ or ‘Invalid or incomplete multibyte or wide character (84)’ when transferring files between FAT32 and NTFS. This simple tool renames files to proper utf8 encodings.

Install
#sudo apt-get install convmv

Recursive Usage
$convmv -r --notest -f latin1 -t utf-8 /dir
