I can only recommend you don't use spaces in File/Directory names.

It causes all sorts of thing to break, makes scripting cumbersome
and fragile because you never really know how many times a given
script line (or part of line) will be interpreted.

For each interpretation you need another level of escaping or quoting.

Spaces in File / Directory names are a M$ sickness, in my humble opinion.
If you've ever written any INF-Files under M$, you'll know what I mean.
