Original post over here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/35350216/unexpected-single-quote-in-file-name

Basically, it seems that ever since I accidentally overloaded my filesystem (it's not currently and there don't seem to be any errors on disk), I've been seeing single-quotes, only when using ls in filenames that have spaces in them. I'm not sure why exactly this is happening. How would I go about changing it back to the way it was?
