Rocky Linux 9
Nextcloud Windows Client 3.6.5
Due to a need to support PHP 8, I just migrated from ownCloud to nextCloud 25.0.2. I plan to upgrade to .3 shortly.
Nextcloud is a great product. It works well.
However, I am unable to get the nextCloud Windows client to stop complaining about filenames that contain a colon in the name:
File names containing the character “:” are not supported on this file system
The files in questions are screenshots, originating from my Ubuntu workstation.
Yeah, I get it. NTFS does not support filenames with a colon in the name. To prevent these files from syncing to my Windows client, I added the following ignore file pattern to the windows client app without the quotes: “*:*”.
Unfortunately, this does not work. Each morning when I power on my Windows laptop, I am greeted with the same file sync errors.
Is there a way to resolve this?
