Is a file in an archive enough?

It looks like it looses the special character in tar or zip, but 7zip can store it just fine.
What 7zip? Native or Cygwin?
I used native 7zip to store the file and copy it to another machine.
It is also possible to copy such a file to another machine using Windows Neighbourhood.

Given that a Cygwin 7zip would probably change the results, could you
please provide the file in a format which doesn't force me to download
another piece of software? Like, for instance, zip?

As I said, zip doesn't want to store this file (at least the version I have installed).
And tar changes the strange character into "_".
Cygwin's p7zip will probably not restore this file as well as all Cygwin's programs have problems reading such a file - so Iguess they will have problems to create it as well.

If you know a program which is able to store the file properly - fine, I can use it. I just don't know what program would that be.

Better:  Create a shell script which creates the file which makes
trouble and send the script.
I've no idea how to create a file with such name.
I'm doing backups with rsync (sort of) and I was checking which files are not copied - this was one of user files.

Shortcut:  Tell me what the actual filename is.  I can switch to the
german keyboard layout if necessary.

And what's the actual filename?

The actual filename is:


But I guess it doesn't help much.
