    Hey! I suppose you plugin doesn't support sanitizing filenames of files previously added to WP. Do you think it'd be doable to add such functionality

    I do not know now if it possible. Yet.
    But I will find out and maybe this will be added in future version.

    Thanks. This feature would be really cool. I'm trying to move a site with loads of such 'dirty' file names between servers. Images works on server A even thought the file names have non standard characters, but on a server B everything breaks.

    So, in the meantime, for anybody who has the same problem (broken characters in filenames) there's a solution that worked for me: this plugin ( http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/media-file-renamer/ ) renames all media file names according to the attachment name and sanitizes all accented/non-standard characters. It took me about 10m to rename about 400 files (I had ti resolve naming conflicts).
