Novell Filr 1.2
Novell Filr 1.1


Filr Desktop client is stuck on a number of files and shows the following errors repeatedly in the filr log:

2015-03-20 08:05:37,029 [download-2] [WARNING] Check sum validation of the downloaded file failed: Net Folders\Net-Folder-1\Photos\profile-picture.JPG ('Size mismatch: expected 1100384, got 38572') (aca.filesync2.processor.server)


A fix for this issue is available in the Filr 1.2 Hot Patch 1 / Filr 1.1 Hot Patch 3, available via the Novell Patch Finder.


The last-mod-time on the file from the filesystem is in the past whereas the last-mod-time on the same file in the Filr database and that returned from filesystem via FAMT is in the future. For example, filesystem shows last-mod-time: 22-Feb-2015 but Filr database reports 23-Feb-2015.
