Sorry, I made a mistake. Not coverting ANSI to UTF-8.

I use the notepad++ and create a new file encoding in ANSI.

Then, I encoded the file in UTF-8 as below

Original : C:\Documents and Settings\chihchieh.sun\®à­±\gnucash\¸ê²£­t¶Å
ANSI :     C:\Documents and Settings\chihchieh.sun\桌面\gnucash\資產負債
UTF-8 :    C:\Documents and Settings\chihchieh.sun\®à­±\gnucash\¸ê²£­t¶ÅÓ×

Display as below

Original Path
C:\Documents and Settings\chihchieh.sun\®à­±\gnucash\¸ê²£­t¶Åªí.gnucash
History in Gsettings
C:\Documents and Settings\chihchieh.sun\桌面\gnucash\資產負債�gnucash

However, If I use the notepad++ to convert the full path from ansi to UTF-8

the full path is

C:\Documents and Settings\chihchieh.sun\®à­±\gnucash\¸ê²£­t¶ÅÓ×gnucash.

It seems more correct.
