Unless those backslashes are a part of the filename, get rid of them.
 You're using single quotes and --protect-args, so you only need a backslash
it exists in the filename.  Also, make sure the character set for your
high-bit quote matches between systems, or you may need to use an --iconv
conversion.  If removing the backslashes doesn't make it work, you can also
try substituting 1 or 2 question marks in place of the high-bit quote in
order to match it.
