That looks like something which can be confusing indeed, not sure on how
to make the difference between users entering a directory and those
using a name with special chars though.

Do you have any suggestion on what you would change there to make the
user experience better? Knowing that some users likely want to enter a
directory in this entry and that should still work correctly

The error message could be easily improved though
