Hi

First you need to find how the conversion happens. It may happen implicitly in the OS or explicitly by WinSCP if it considers the remote filename to be UTF-8 encoded. What protocol are you using?
Then you can instruct WinSCP to URL-encode these characters, by manually editing following registry key:
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Martin Prikryl\WinSCP 2\Configuration\Interface\CopyParam]
"LocalInvalidChars"="/%5C:%2A%3F\"<>|"    
(note that some special characters are also URL-encoded in the configuration).
