I don't think that is a Windows problem. The hex looks like ISO-8859-1:
" SPRINT SST 111 - Gro├čkun" so it appears that you have done a checkout
or update in a non-UTF-8 locale (perhaps de_DE?) and created the
non-UTF-8 path on disk. Then you have switched to a UTF-8 locale and
tried to continue using the working copy.

One solution is to checkout a new working copy in the UTF-8 locale.
Another is to go back to the non-UTF-8 locale. It may be possible to
convert the existing working copy to UTF-8 by removing the non-ascii
paths and using update/revert to recreate them in UTF-8.
