Novell Filr 2.0
Novell Filr Desktop client 2.0 (build 214)


When trying to access the Filr context menu by right-clicking on the My Files folders, the context menu is not present. The filr.log file logs the following error condition when this happens:

2015-10-06 14:04:50,157 [command-handler] [ERROR] Error processing command: directory get_sync_info C:\Users\acme\AppData\Local\Novell Filr\My Files\NFMS core team notes (aca.commands)

A fix for this issue is available in the Filr 2.0 Hot Patch 1 (which also delivers an updated Filr Desktop client), available via the Novell Patch Finder.
