Novell Filr 1.2 Desktop client


The Filr Desktop client may generate multiple conflicting copies of a file on every subsequent sync if it detects the file has changed locally IF the file in question is a zero-byte file.

Creating a zero-byte file is usually done by: Right click in Windows Explorer and Select 'New Document'.


A fix for this issue is available in the Filr 1.2 Hot Patch 1, available via the Novell Patch Finder. With the fix in place, a zero-byte file will be detected and conflicting copies of the file will not be generated.
