Copying over Amiga files with dodgy filenames to PC

I have an old CD with Amiga files on that I want to copy to my Windows 7 PC.

When Windows finds a file with a problematic filename, it only allows you to skip that file - it won't automatically copy the file and remove the forbidden characters (such as '?' or '|') in it at the same time.

I want those 'forbidden' files. How do I get Windows to automatically rename them as it copies and continue with the rest?

Will I need to WinUAE for this I wonder or is there a simpler solution...?

I've tried the following file manager programs, all without success. I even tried to dip into the options for each program to hopefully use its own custom copy method:

- FreeCommander XE (has its own copy routine, but still fails)
- XYplorer (has its own copy routine, but still fails)
- Double Commander
- Directory Opus 11 64-bit. (Pro edition)
- xplorer˛
- Q-Dir
- Unreal Commander
- NexusFile
- Total Commander
