Yeah, that's awesome, thank you! We've been skipping the filesystem tests (see https://github.com/microsoft/STL/blob/39eb812426167fc7955005b53b28d696c50e8b61/tests/libcxx/skipped_tests.txt#L71-L187 ) but we'd love to enable them and report any future Windows-specific issues we encounter.

Our own filesystem tests (Apache-2.0 WITH LLVM-exception, as usual) are here: https://github.com/microsoft/STL/blob/39eb812426167fc7955005b53b28d696c50e8b61/tests/std/tests/P0218R1_filesystem/test.cpp I don't immediately know how we could contribute this to libcxx given the difference in our test strategies (where libcxx typically has one test per section and MSVC typically has one test per paper, leading to large test cases like this one), but perhaps the various parts testing Windows paths could be useful to you?
