Files with accentuated characters

Hi, I’m trying to migrate my site on DigitalOcean hosting, but I’m french and a lot of my wordpress media file names have accentuated characters.

I don’t know why, but when I transfer it with FTP, the accentuated characters are replaced by cabalistic ones…

Can you help me ?
