“Filename contains invalid characters” notification

Filecloud is not able to synchronize files with filenames containing invalid characters. 
On the Windows platform there are a couple of characters which aren’t allowed in filenames.
E.g. the following characters are not allowed on Windows:

\ / : * ? ” < > |

You create a file with a date stamp to organize your files. E.g. on the Mac OS, you will have a file named “09/03/2009 Status Meeting.docx”. When you try to access the fileserver to check out the meeting report on your Windows pc, you will find that it is impossible to download the file because of the “/” characters.

The solution is to rename the file on the device that uploaded the file.
