Yes! \include{"folder\space 1/folder\space 2/My\space file"} worked.

I understand. Still, these under-the-hood issues cause an  
inconsistency at the user level.

BTW, \input and \include are sufficiently different that I almost  
exclusively use \include: in a multisegment document such as a book,  
\include can selectively typeset a portion of the larger document  
(usually a chapter) while retaining access to information, such as  
equation numbers etc., defined in the rest of the document.
