Novell Filr 1.2
Novell Filr Desktop client 1.2


Special characters such as forward slash (/), colon (:), etc. in a file name are not handled by the Mac Desktop client causing the files to not sync between the client and server.


An updated Desktop client with a fix for this issue is available in the Filr 1.2 Hot Patch 2, available via the Novell Patch Finder.

With the fix in place, all special characters will be replaced with an underscore (_) at sync time.
