Filerr watches for file names that are not compatible with Windows computers, Windows formatted USB drives or online cloud services like Dropbox and Jungle Disk.

Mac OSX allows file names with characters that are not supported by Windows computers, Windows formatted USB drives or cloud services such as Dropbox and Jungle Disk. These file names include:

  • File names containing the characters / : * ? " < > |
  • File names beginning with space " "

Creating files with incompatible file names is unfortunately very common on the Mac, for example:

  • Dragging a Web page from Chrome, Firefox
