Filr desktop client syncs temporary files

This document (7014284) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.

Environment

Novell Filr Desktop Client 1.0.1
Novell Filr Desktop Client 1.0.0

Situation

When a user opens/edits some files (such as .docx, .xlsx, .pptx, etc.) via their Filr Desktop synchronized folder, the underlying application (such as such as Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.) would often save a temporary file in the same directory and name it in one of the following ways (beginning or end of the file name):

.*.part
ppt*.tmp
~*.tmp
~$*
.~*
desktop.ini
thumbs.db
.ds_store

All such temporary files are currently synchronized to the Filr server.

Resolution

Starting with Filr Desktop Client 1.0.2, these temporary files will no longer be synchronized to the Filr server.
