Description of problem:
file names containing spaces are shown with spaces as %20. when trying to open the file nautilus responds :-

"The filename "inkpen%20web" indicates that this file is of type "folder". The contents of the file indicate that the file is of type "unknown". If you open this file, the file might present a security risk to your system.

Do not open the file unless you created the file yourself, or received the file from a trusted source. To open the file, rename the file to the correct extension for "unknown", then open the file normally. Alternatively, use the Open With menu to choose a specific application for the file." 

No options are available to open the file or directory.
