Last modified: 2012-09-05 10:07:27 BST
Despite Feed Items beign marked for 'Archive', downloaded files are moved to '[feednamefolder]/Unknown' and marked as deleted. A good number/most of the moved items/files have accents or another less-common symbol. Some Examples:

Zoë Badwi - Freefallin_ (Official Video)
Beyoncé - Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)
Selena Gomez _ The Scene_ ¨Love You Like a Love Song¨ Contains the "" characters.
Videos with 'ñ' charaxter.
After beign moved and shown as deleted in the Feed Item list, If the items are downloaded again, the downloaded video filename accents or symbols are stripped from the filename. Examples
Bob Sinclar _ Raffaella Carr - Far L_Amore (Official Video)
Beyonc - Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It).
DJ Antoine ft. The Beat Shakers - Ma Chrie (DJ Antoine vs Mad Mark 2k12 Edit) (Official Video HD).

We should probably just remove the feature that moves files into the "Unknown" folder.

Generally agree, however, I think something could be salvaged here if you were interested in not throwing away good code:
If this "unknown" folder feature is supposed to be a feature that collected "watched/listened to" (i.e., 'touched') files into a subfolder for easier navigation, then I think this could be a very nice feature...but only IF the following were also true:
1. User can turn this "Archive" feature on/off in settings (based on individual need).
2. User can define the name of the "unknown" folder in settings (i.e., "Watched" or "Listened" or "Archive").
With the above additions to the code, I think it's a very nice feature to have in Gpodder.
