Why Did Image URLs Change After Creating a WordPress backup?

After a problem with wordpress update I decided to backup the site from cPanel. However after the backup I realized that most of the images are not visible anymore on the site. Then I discovered that those images are the ones with some foreign character in the url ( for instance ÇÖÜ? ) and those characters on my files are turned into characters #U203. Is there any way I can solve this problem without uploading all the images or renaming them one by one because there hundreds of them . Thank you in advance

Hello, Thank you for your question regarding image URL's not showing correctly. I recommend resetting your Permalinks to see if it can correct the URLs. If your problems persist our WordPress Troubleshooting guide can help you narrow down the cause further. Thank you, John-Paul
