With iFolder 3.8, neither .DS_STORE nor Thumbs.db files may synchronized, this was a design decision based on the frequent changes made to the files causing excessive conflicts occuring with iFolder clients.  The iFolder /admin console, however, gives the appearance that these files may be enabled for synchronization on a user by user basis.  Although it appears that these files my be synchronized on a user-by-user basis, these files may NOT be synchronized to the iFolder server.  The seen option to allow synchronization of these files has been reported to engineering as a defect.


This has been reported to engineering.  The option to 'allow' these will not work, and should be removed from the /admin console for iFolder.
