• Mass Uploads

    From Lupine Furmen@1:103/705 to All on Sunday, October 06, 2019 10:04:58
    Ok, in the midst of setting up my file bases, and in doing the mass upload I'm noticing that Synchro is refusing to accept files with a single character extension, or files without an extension.
    Correction. I now see what's happening. It's not reading the long file names. It's trying to enforce an 8.3 file naming, so it's reading the first 8 character in the file name and treating the next 3 letters as the extension which is messing things up and it refuses to upload the file into the base. example, it's reading "A New Life - TheEggman.lit" as "A New Li.fe"

    Also, Is there a way to have it do a mass upload without any interaction from my end?

    This is on Windows? Adding long filenames on Windows *should* work.

    Do you also have this problem when there are no spaces in the filename? Spaces are problematic.

    Yes:
