Micro Focus Filr 3.0


If a Filr Net Folder (or a sub-folder) configured with OES backend filesystem, contains any of the following characters in the name: &, §, $ then Filr users are not able to access the folder.

The following error is logged in FAMTD log file:

A fix for this issue is available in Filr 3.1 Update.
