What do you mean by the original string Norman?
Look at these definitions:

Quoted String:

In the different parts of the URL, there are set of characters, for
e.g. space character in path, that must be quoted, which means
converted to a different form so that url is understood by the
So ' ' is quoted to %20.

Unquoted String:

When %20 comes in the URL, humans need it unquoted so that we can understand it.

What do you mean by original string?
Why are you doing base64 encoding?
And what are you trying to achieve?

Perhaps these can help us to help you better?
