Hi, Mason,

Yes, thank you for this. It is most enlightening.

There were two files that had an error extracting, but WinRAR corrected 
  One had a question mark in the filename which is a
     wild card for a single character in Windows
  The other had a string of asterisks and an asterisk is a
     wild card for any number of characters, hence the
     infamous del *.* command where you erase everything.

It replaced the ? and * with underscores _
