Hi, I just stumpled upon a issue when testing Ark Media Manager.
I tried to create a new folder and randomly called it 'nýggj_mappa' (meaning new_folder). I then recieved a success message telling me that the folder had been created.
But I could not see my newly created folder anywhere inside the Ark Media Manager.
I then tried to open the Joomla Media Manager and could see the folder there.
However I then noticed I couldn't access the folder or delete it because it had a special character 'ý'.
I didn't think about it when I created the folder, that Joomla doesn't permit folder creation with special character.
So using FTP I renamed the folder to 'nyggj_mappa'. It then appeared just fine within the Ark Media Manager.
The issue or bug here, is that Ark Media Manager should detect this and either support it or not permit it by giving a error message.
e.g. handle it similar like Joomla Media Manager handles such.
If I try to create a folder with special characters e.g. 'Nýggj_mappa' using the Joomla Media Manager I get following Error Message:
"Unable to create folder. Folder name must only contain alphanumeric characters and no spaces. "
Same goes for upload a new images/files. If I upload a image named eksampel 'nýggj.jpg' then Joomla handles this by just stripping the 'ý' so the saved name is 'nggj.jpg'. Ark Media however just uploads it as it is, and as result doesn't show in the Ark Media content, and the file can't be deleted or motified with Joomla Media Manager because of the special character.
However a file with a special character can still be inserted into a article using the Joomla Media Manager.

- Steps to replicate the issue
- In Ark Media, create a new folder named eksampel 'nýggj_mappa' (new_folder), or upload a new file. You'll get a success message telling you that 'nýggj_mappa Folder Created in: images.'
