Добрый день

Возможно ли использование спецсимволов, чтобы на маке папка была видна, а на windows такая папка пропускалась при синхронизации?

Привет, @office_eco, спасибо, что обратились к нам.

 

Не могли бы вы уточнить, о каких специальных символах вы говорите?

 

Вы добавили эти символы в название папки, которая не синхронизировалась?

 

Содержит ли имя папки какие-либо символы здесь?

 

Держите меня в курсе.

Hey @office_eco, thanks for reaching out to us.

 

Can you clarify what kind of special characters you're referring to?

 

Have you added these characters the name of a folder, which didn't sync?

 

Did the folder name contain any of the characters here?

 

Keep me posted.

Да, получается было что-то из спецсимволов в названии. Папка вроде бы была синхронизирована с другими устройствами, в частности, с windows. Из windows я перенес папку в архив (чтобы ее не было в облаке), а когда она снова понадобилась, я обнаружил, что папки нет. Из корзины эти данные тоже удалены. Возможно ли как-то восстановить содержимое? Я писал запрос на почту, но мне не ответили.

Спасибо за обновление здесь!

 

Если вы удалите специальный символ из имени папки, папка сможет без проблем синхронизироваться на всех ваших устройствах.

 

Что касается контента, который был удален, вы можете увидеть его на странице удаленных файлов?

Thank you for the update here!

 

If you remove the special character from the folder name, the folder should be able to sync across all your devices without an issue.

 

As for the content that was deleted, are you able to see it in your deleted files page?

Hey!

 

Are the special characters listed on the website to avoid, the only special characters to avoid or is it a list of examples of special characters to avoid?

HI @Sim4, the article here does contain a list of the most common characters that might prevent syncing to certain devices and OSes, however, it is not a full conclusive list. 

 

Generally, uncommon symbol characters could also affect the syncing of files and folders.
