I synchronize files between Linuw and Windows and some of the filenames are illegal in some OS and fine in the other.
Are there some baked-in strategies to deal with that?
- automatic renaming?
- automatically discard the files?
I can manually try to
.ignore them, or manually rename but I am looking for automated actions.
Automatic renaming is outside of Syncthing territory, but you could of course ignore them with generic patterns, e.g.
*\?* (to ignore files with
? in them) and so on. You should check https://learn.microsoft.com/windows/win32/fileio/naming-a-file for specific information on what is and isn’t allowed in Windows.
