This looks ok to me.  File.find yields files and directories with spaces
without any problem.  Perhaps the problem is with the "convert"

The easiest workaround (if that's the case) is to rename the file before
passing it to convert, replacing spaces with underscores.

Otherwise, you'll have to be more specific about the error you're
