[BAG] project panel, file path contains "_"

Notepad++ v7.8.7 build Jun 5 2020
BAG in the project panel. If a file is added to the project, in the full path of which there is an _ symbol, after saving and restoring the project, the file becomes inaccessible, and leads to the need to correct the file path manually.
Error in escaping the _ character. Example path c:\Users \ some_path \ some_file.txt"
This become to c:\Users \ some \ _ path\some_file.txt

Sorry, your post was hard to follow. My first question is, what do you mean by “[BAG]”?
Could you give a more detailed description of exactly what you’re doing, what went wrong, and what you expect to happen (that didn’t). Including the ?-menu’s Debug Info in your post makes it much easier for us to know what your installation of Notepad++ looks like, and thus be able to try to replicate your problem.
I highly recommend, when typing filenames and paths, that you use the ` symbol before and after the path, which tells the forum to use red text, like
c:\users\some\_path\some_file.txt, using the syntax
`c:\users\some\_path\some_file.txt`. Make sure to not add extra spaces; any spaces in the filename should be real. And are you using the
_as a literal underscore character, or as a placeholder for a space character.

There are cases where Project save wrong path:
@donho It would be worth exploring it because I can see that the more people noticed this :)
