Re: Is there a way to allow "?" "*"/" in a folder name and file name?

Yes, you will have to use your ascii codes though.

Hold down alt and then type 33 on your numpad, then release alt for an exclamation point.

HERE is a list of codes you can use along with what buttons to press to use them, though not all can be used in filenames (because they do not show up properly).
