You may have specified the wrong high-bit apostrophe.  Note that rsync
outputs characters that it is told are not displayable using escaped octal
(\#200\#231 == octal 0200 + 0231, or 0x80 + 0x99), but you can't use such a
sequence in the input -- it is just there to try to help you figure out what
undisplayable character is there.  Use your shell to help you complete the
filename -- since it's local, you should be able to just tab-complete the
name and use whatever the shell gives you.
