I would recommend these practices:

1) Always work with UTF-8 when you can. That goes for filesystems,
files, and email.
2) If disks mount with gibberish in Linux, then check how they mount
in windows with the chcp command.
3) Have a gibberish-translator at the ready, so that you don't need to
go looking for one at the critical moment that you need it. Shameless
plug: for Hebrew use http://gibberish.co.il
