Server 2008 replacing spaces with underscores

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
Hi all, interesting one here, we have a Server 2008 Standard set up that runs as a domain controller and general data store. Recently the users have brought up an issue whereby the spaces in the file names change to underscores. As far as we can see ther is no reason for this and we have never had it before.

Is this something to do with the configuration or could it be another piece of software doing it? The desktops are using Microsoft Office 2007 to access the files.

Many thanks
