How to convert a file name with \??\ at the beginning into format that file
APIs can understand?

I don't think files are allowed to contain question marks, where did you get
that from? Also, taking a look at CreateFile() docs, there is a case where
you should prepend "\\?\" to a path, ("\\\\?\\" in C), is that what you
mean? Lastly, what exactly is your problem? What are you doing, what do you
get and what would you expect instead?

That's a "raw" path or whatever they are called again.. I have seen an
API that does "something" and I think it took either those paths or
other ones.. Now what was it again... I will have a look around. I know
I have seen *something* but I just don't remember exactly what it was
and what it was called.

Might be called "device path"... I am looking for it at least.

Not device path.. I think.. I kind of recall something with "DOS".. I
might be lying here but I'm letting you anyways just in case it gives
some hints on what to look for at least.
