Windows - Mac sync issues

Recommended Posts


Some files are not synchronized between Mac and Windows. They all contain a dot at the end of the folder name.

For example : /folder/folder./folder/file.txt

Some files are unreadable. They contain a space at the end of their their folder name or a dot at the end of their file name.

For example : /folder/folder/file.

Or : /folder/folder  /file.txt

Thank you

file /folder/folder./folder/file.txt does sync from Mac to Windows, but you won't be able to get to the file as path is invalid for Windows. 
same with file: /folder/folder/file. It gets synced, but it won't open as this is invalid name for Windows.
trailing spaces that arrive from Mac are replaced with underscore on windows. Same refers to other symbols - | ? <> / etc

We'll see if trailing dots and other punctuation marks shall also be replaced with underscore.
