Novell Filr 1.1


In some cases, a file that was created and uploaded via the Filr Desktop client may report the following conflict when the user tries to save additional changes to that file:

"Cannot upload My Files/folder1/project1/document1.docx to the server because it has been modified by someone else."

Additionally, when this happens the following may also appear in the desktop client's log file (filr.log):

2015-03-03 14:33:18,078 [upload-1] [INFO] Sending Growl notification: Unable to upload document1.docx cannot be uploaded because it has been modified by someone else.  Click here for more information. (aca.osx)

A fix for this issue is available in the Filr 1.1 Hot Patch 2, available via the Novell Patch Finder.
