I think this error occurs may be because of Mac OS X character validation. Mac OS allow you to use some special character for file or folder name and other rename sector. But Microsoft Windows con not allow these special characters for file or folder name. This is a benefit of Mac os.
But this benefit has a problem. It may cause this type of errors. In Microsoft Windows you can use these characters but there is a protocol for it. Mac does not have that type of protocol. This error occurs when you are trying command to open or copy a file, which have this type of file names using these special characters.
Rename these files or folders and do not use (? [ ] / = + < > ; : " , | *) these characters in order to solve this error.
