My crystal ball says that you are using a Cygwin build of Find, which
produces file names with spaces escaped in a style suitable for a
Unixy shell, which the native Windows Emacs cannot grok (because
backslashes are directory separators in native Windows file names).

Solution: use a native Windows port of Find.
