Unable to sync files in "My Files" with Selective Folder Sync enabled

This document (7013029) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


Novell Filr 1.0


Files that are contained within the root directory of Novell Filr "My Files" are not synced when using selective Folder sync with the Desktop Client, nor is there a way to configure it this way. If a user wants selective Folder sync, they are unable to have the other files sync that are contained in that uppermost root directory - "My Files"

For example, with Dropbox - the contents of the uppermost root directory called "Dropbox" sync by default, regardless of what folders are set to sync. A user is able to do selective folder sync, still having the files sync from the "Dropbox" root directory.


There is no workaround at this time. Organize it so all files are contained in a folder structure when using Selective Folder Sync on the Desktop Client.
